Celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Wild and Scenic St. Croix Riverway with a party.
What do humans and bugs have in common? Come learn about some unexpected similarities while enjoying live music from the band Soul Tree, cake and wine. Dr. Marlene Zuk, University of Minnesota professor, TED speaker, and author will enlighten us about how insect and human sex lives compare.
“People are more afraid of insects than they are of dying, but for centuries some of the greatest minds in science have drawn inspiration from studying some of the smallest minds on earth,” said Zuk.
We hope you can join us learn a little bit about bugs, enjoy some good music, and to celebrate the golden birthday of the Riverway and all of its unique features.

The event is one of many in 2018 to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the St. Croix National Scenic Riverway, which became a national park with the passage of the Wild & Scenic Rivers Act in 1968. Thanks to federal protections, the Riverway — which includes the St. Croix and Namekagon Rivers — still offers clean water, breathtaking beauty, and abundant recreation.
Tickets are $15 for members and $20 for non-members.
Appetizers and cake are included in the registration; cash bar from Winehaven.
