Water Quality Testing at Wild River Cleanup

Water Quality Testing at Wild River Cleanup

Join a celebration of the river or participate in a clean-up. For one week, the awareness that you can give to the St. Croix River, and the rivers that flow to it, will help build a connection that will continue through the year.

Thank you to the volunteers who help to make River Awareness Week clean-ups such a great success! And to the members of the river communities, thank you for supporting this special week by attending many of the fun events that are held up and down the St. Croix River!

Thousands participate in River Awareness Week activities annually:

  • Hudson RiverFest activities
  • River Cruise-workshop for Community Leaders
  • St. Croix Sojourn
  • Clean-ups that in 2013 collected 27% plastic; 30% aluminum cans; 20% paper; 9% Styrofoam; 8% scrap metal; 3% clothes/shoes; 2% cigarette butts; 1% tires (5); and 2 camp chairs
