A group formed last summer to help be good stewards of the St. Croix’s biggest tributary, the Namekagon, is holding its inaugural annual event  to celebrate the river and get more people aware of its work.

The Namekagon River Partnership, a fledgling group organized to celebrate and protect the Namekagon River, is hosting its first ever annual gathering on June 16, and everyone is invited for food, fun, education, and a chance to “be part of the river’s future.”

Kids are welcome, and the evening will feature a mix of festivities, education, and participation. See the flyer below for details:

Namekagon River Partnership event invitation

The group gives this description of its mission:

NRP works cooperatively with local citizens and businesses, governmental agencies, and non-profit organizations that share its interests in conserving the fishery and the plant and animal habitat of the Namekagon River. We can be contacted

NRP aspires to be a positive and proactive voice of the river. We will increase the visibility of the river, retell its history, and advance a science-based discussion

We welcome your participation as we cannot tell the river’s story and move forward without your ideas and support.  Please join our effort and help us to connect people with the river.

The event is on June 16, starting at 5:30 p.m. R.S.V.P.s are requested but not required and can be sent to or call 715-376-4260.
