Help support the preservation, protection and appreciation of our river with Community Thread’s River Rally: St. Croix River Clean Up. The scenic St. Croix River is where we go to canoe, fish, swim, or simply take in the view.

Join fellow river lovers on September 7, starting at 9:00 am, to protect and preserve this beautiful river.

This volunteer event is hosted in partnership with the National Park Service, the Department of Natural Resources, and the Washington County Conservation District.

All volunteers will be meeting at the Zephyr Theatre parking lot and we will have a picnic lunch after the event at the Zephyr. Their address is: 601 Main Street North, Stillwater, MN 55082.

The Brown’s Creek Trail clean up and Storm Drain Stenciling will start from that parking lot and the pontoon riders will walk 3 blocks to the Stillwater Boat Rental and get on the boats there. Boom Site Clean-up volunteers will need to drive to the Boom Site and Boom Site boat launch areas.

Volunteer Opportunities:

St. Croix River Clean-up
Help support the preservation, protection and appreciation of the St. Croix River by cleaning up the islands and shoreline of the St. Croix River from the Boom Site to the High Bridge via pontoon boat.

Boom Site Clean-up
Help with land-based clean up at the Boom Site along the St. Croix River

Brown’s Creek Trail Clean-up
Help with trail clean up along the Brown’s Creek State Trail

Storm Drain Clean-up and Stenciling
Help to protect the St. Croix River from storm water pollution by cleaning up curbside debris and stenciling storm drains in downtown and the north hill neighborhood of Stillwater.
