Feature presentation: “The St. Croix: A Northwoods Journey”

The National Park Service produced a terrific 20-minute film about the St. Croix River two years ago titled “The St. Croix: A Northwoods Journey.” It’s available for viewing at the St. Croix National Scenic Riverway headquarters in St. Croix Falls, Wisconsin, and as a loaner DVD from several libraries in the region.

But it has not been available on the Internet … until now! As a citizen who loves the river, I thought I could help and I have taken the liberty of posting it here.

It seems like in this day and age, government agencies ought to make such materials available online, though I understand the bureaucracy and such can be overwhelming. But it is a great flick with beautiful footage of this wonderful river, and unique characters expressing what it is about the St. Croix that is so special. In any case, I think it deserves a wider audience that it is destined to receive with limited physical availability.

Enjoy.

    This was beautiful. Growing up on the river, it’s just as easy to take for granted as it is to appreciate it.

    Can’t wait to get the paddle wet again soon!

    This is the river I grew up on. I’ve been all over it, from Taylor’s Falls to Page’s Slew to Lake St. Croix. Dived into it, swam it, boated it, canoed it, camped it, skied it both summer and winter. The stories I could tell about this river. And the stories it could tell about me.

      Wonderful comment. It truly is something magnificent to get to know a river. The St. Croix is one of the great loves of my life, too, and I love encountering other people that have such a powerful bond. Thanks for stopping by!
