St. Croix River Clean-up

The Friends "St. Croix River Clean-up" event is normally held on the second Saturday in July. Friends members and their families plus other volunteers bring their canoes or use one of the eight that are provided by the park. We paddle down the St. Croix River between the Sunrise landing and the main boat landing within the park, picking up trash in the river and on its banks. We need help from many volunteers to do a good job!

Eight beautiful Wenona Spirit 2 canoes are available for free! Call 651-583-2125 x227 to reserve yours. Bring a lunch, water, gloves, insect repellent, sunscreen, dress for all weather (we'll clean rain or shine, but cancel for lightning), and prepare for a good time.
If you bring your own canoe don't forget PFD's, paddles, etc. Drop your canoe off at the Sunrise landing where a Friends member will watch it while you drive your vehicle to the take-out at the main landing, then take our shuttle back to Sunrise. If you're not up for canoeing, we can always use help cleaning the landings!......
Regardless of whether you have your own canoe or will use one of the park's, we will meet at 9am at Wild River State Park at the the main boat access parking lot. We will gather there and figure out carpooling, then drive up to the Sunrise Ferry landing.
Bring at least 2 liters of water per person and a bag lunch. We will have lunch somewhere on the way down. We usually finish up around 3 or 4 at the main boat access landing.
