The St. Croix River Association (SCRA) is the official non-profit partner of the St. Croix National Scenic Riverway. Together with the National Park Service and others, we create opportunities for people to experience and care for the Riverway. Thanks to your support, we work throughout the watershed to protect and enhance this National Park that flows through its heart.


SCRA offers K-12 environmental education programs within the St. Croix River watershed in Minnesota and Wisconsin. Email to schedule a field trip for your class, scout troop, summer camp, or youth group!
