St. Croix 360 is different than most online news sources. Our site doesn’t have ads breaking up your reading and there is no paywall closing it off to the public. We stay focused on the stories and make sure anyone can read them.
Without those other revenue sources, we turn to our readers.
Since last week, when we announced our goal of 360 financial supporters this year, 20 more people contributed! That brings us to 200 total. Now we need you. Please click here to contribute.
Online ads don’t make much money for publications like St. Croix 360 and paywalls present their own problems:
“Increasingly, the fact-based news that’s necessary for a pro-democracy citizenry is behind a paywall,” reported the journalism institute Poynter earlier this year. Meanwhile, misinformation is free.
St. Croix 360 is dedicated to keeping our stories accurate and accessible to all. We hope you will help make that possible. Thank you in advance.

Just river stories? Why the story opposing hunting bears with dogs? What does that have to do with the St. Croix River? No pollution, etc. Is this a balanced publication? Hunting bear with dogs makes them more wary of humans and helps keep them out of trouble with humans and private properties.
