The St. Croix Watershed Stewardship Award is an honor given annually to those having made a significant contribution to stewardship of the St. Croix River and/or its tributaries. The St. Croix River Association is currently accepting nominations for the 2013 Award.
Last year’s recipients include Port of Sunnyside Club, Inc. for their exceptional work in filtering and recycling wash water at the Sunnyside Marina; the St. Croix Valley & North Star Chapters of the Sierra Club, who shared with the St. Croix Valley Interstate Group of the Sierra Club for showing support of the river preservation and protection values of the St. Croix River; and Mike Reiter for his tireless dedication to natural resource protection.
Nominations can be made on behalf of any individual, business, organization or community. Award recipients will receive an inscribed plaque which is presented at the Association’s spring dinner.
