New name. Same important vision.
A thriving watershed, forever accessible, scenic, and wild

Who We Are:
Wild Rivers Conservancy is the official nonprofit partner of the St. Croix National Scenic Riverway.
We inspire stewardship to forever ensure the rare ecological integrity of the St. Croix and Namekagon Riverway.

Thanks to your support, we work throughout the watershed
to protect and enhance this national park that flows through its heart.

Protect & Restore

The Conservancy takes a holistic approach to watershed protection and renewal. We target and prioritize conservation efforts that result in the greatest pollution reduction, land conservation, and stewardship growth.

Learn & Explore

We lead programs so people of all backgrounds and abilities can discover and explore the St. Croix, inspire river stewardship through watershed-wide education, and engage children and non-typical park visitors to realize the health and inspiration that comes from time spent on the river.


Fundamentally, it will take everyone to protect the Riverway, including our individual and business supporters. Continued protection of this place and its world-class experiences requires commitment from all of us.

With your support we can make sure this special, but fragile,
Wild and Scenic River National Park remains an intact, healthy river system.
