Via the St. Croix River Association:
Are you passionate about the St. Croix and Namekagon Rivers? The St. Croix River Association, in partnership with the St. Croix National Scenic Riverway, is seeking volunteers to help with three “on the water” opportunities:
- Ranger Guided River Programs: One volunteer is needed to assist a NPS ranger for each of the 14 paddle program. The programs run from May-August and are on both the St. Croix and Namekagon rivers. Kayaking experience and a NPS training session will be required. A listing of the programs with dates and times is available at www.scrapaddle.org.
- Project RED: The St. Croix River Association, River Alliance of Wisconsin and National Park Service (NPS) will be training citizens to become Riverine Early Detectors. Volunteers will assist in detecting invasive species early, when it is still possible to isolate or eradicate the infestation. Enjoy paddling and protecting your river at the same time! Training dates are July 16 or July 27.
- Algae Alert Network: Contribute to citizen science and public safety by helping monitor the St. Croix River for algal blooms and collecting water samples. Volunteers are needed on a regular and on-call basis between July and September from Wild River State Park to Stillwater. In partnership with the St. Croix National Scenic Riverway.
