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 10, starting at 9:00 am, to protect and preserve this beautiful river. Register here.

This volunteer event is hosted in partnership with the National Park Service, Brown’s Creek Trail Association, Wild Rivers Conservancy, and the Washington County Conservation District.

All volunteers will be meeting at the Zephyr Theatre parking lot for volunteer check in. At noon, 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.

If you have a group of 5 or more contact the volunteer office (651)789-4169 to reserve your spots.
