  • Promote and showcase the rich historical, arts-based, educational, scientific, environmental, and cultural programming in the valley, with a one-stop-shop St. Croix Event and Cultural Guide and free online tools for creating virtual tours of local historic areas.
  • Lead vital partnership-based programs including the St. Croix Watershed Stewards, St. Croix Storytellers Program, and monthly "Live from the North Woods" events with stories celebrating the cultures, people, and natural beauty of the watershed.
