Spend your Sunday on the St. Croix National Scenic Riverway, America’s first Wild and Scenic National Park, with the St. Croix River Association and a National Park Service Ranger.
This scenic paddle will venture off the main channel of the river and into the Kettle River Slough, one of the Riverway’s best-kept secrets. Sunday in the Slough will reveal the wild side of the St. Croix as we experience the aquatic and terrestrial life; eagles, otters, heron, mergansers and osprey are some of the animals we may encounter.
During the 11.7 mile, moderate paddle, participants will learn more about the glacial and human history of the Riverway as we paddle through the ancient Glacial Duluth spillway and make a stop at an old copper paint mine.
