Mission & Vision

Our Vision:

A thriving watershed, forever accessible, scenic and wild.

Our Mission:

Inspire stewardship to forever ensure the rare ecological integrity of the St. Croix and Namekagon Riverway.

Core Functions:

The Wild Rivers Conservancy of the St. Croix and Namekagon is the official nonprofit partner of the St. Croix National Scenic Riverway. Together with the National Park Service and many conservation partners, we work to perform the following core functions:

- Land Conservation
We work to protect and restore important natural and scenic areas along the river and throughout the watershed by partnering with land protection organizations.

- Water Quality Protection
We focus on improving water quality, recognizing its interconnection with land use.

- River Corridor and Watershed Stewardship
We engage people in educational, recreational, and volunteer stewardship activities that give them an understanding and motivation to advocate at the local, state, and national levels on behalf of the river’s values.

- Celebration
The St. Croix River watershed is a national treasure. We live, work and play in the St. Croix River watershed because we love this place, and we celebrate that love at every opportunity.
