All Proceeds go to the Kinnickinnic River Land Trust.
At our Kinni Guardian event on Saturday, September 23, a member stepped up and pledged to pay off the remainder of this debt by 2017 Calendar Year End! We are so grateful to everyone who has helped us retire this debt and, ultimately, preserve three very important properties. We are now free of our burden which will enable us to carry on our Mission to preserve more land in the Kinni watershed.
Following are the three properties that we preserved forever:
Diverse topography and plant/animal communities. KRLT’s acquisition enabled subsequent land swap with River Falls School District Forest designated as an accessible outdoor learning space for our children and community.
After purchase, KRLT transferred 159 Acres to WI DNR, who could better manage this special property as a wildlife area with oak savannas and goat prairies than could our small land trust. KRLT created access to our Jackson Preserve – the only public access to the lower Kinni canyon between River Falls and the St. Croix River. Open to the community year round.
The Quarry Road project permanently protects important Kinni river frontage and surrounding lands. This land had been slated for subdivision and development but is now open to public recreation.
Volunteers Needed for December Kelly Creek Preserve Work Day!
We need your help to cut and burn box elders and buckthorn, treat stumps with herbicide and clean up the area at the spring at our Kelly Creek Preserve. We will try again to burn the old brush pile north of the spring (assuming we have snow on the ground).
Date: Saturday, December 10, 2016
Time: 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. (brats and buns will be provided for lunch)
Location: Kelly Creek Preserve
Lead by: Dan Wilcox, Kelly Creek Preserve Steward
Please RSVP by emailing email@example.com and include your name, email and phone in case the event is rescheduled.
Wear warm, fire-resistant, old clothes.
– heavy gloves or mittens

– chain saw with safety gear (if possible)
The Preserve is located on County Road J in the Town of Kinnickinnic, St. Croix County. Access is from a shared private drive off of CTH J, approximately 1/4 mile east of the bridge over the Kinnickinnic River. We will park along the road by the parking area and walk in.
If you have any questions, please call 715-425-5738.
Chris Bye, Brian Senoraske and Deborah Wulf Named to Board
(July 18, 2016 – River Falls, WI) – The Kinnickinnic River Land Trust (KRLT) is pleased to announce the addition of Chris Bye, Brian Senoraske and Deborah Wulf to its Board of Directors.
Chris was raised in River Falls on the banks of the Rocky Branch, and spent a large portion of his childhood exploring its banks and suffered from chronically wet feet. A graduate of Gustavus Adolphus College and UW Madison, he has worked with various companies and taught for ten years at the University of St. Thomas. In 2005, he co-founded Thinking Moves LLC, and developed a patented system designed to rehabilitate those with neurological challenges (ADHD, autism, trauma, anxiety, depression), without the use of drugs. When not working, he is either fly fishing the local streams or following his English setters through the woods. He lives in Roberts, WI.
Hailing from Wausau, Dr. Brian Senoraske attended UWRF (1996 graduate) and decided to make River Falls his home. Finishing Chiropractic school in 2000, Brian started practicing in River Falls and currently owns Kinni Valley Chiropractic. He lives with his wife Beth and daughter Jordyn on the banks of the upper Kinni, and spends many evenings casting for trout with his daughter in his back yard. Brian is active in the community, plays basketball in the winter and is a member of the River Falls Groupers baseball team. He also enjoys bow hunting and collecting classic cars.
Currently the Marketing Manager for Outreach and Continuing Education at the University of Wisconsin-River Falls, Deb’s past work experience includes communications and public relations positions with the DuPage County (Illinois) Forest Preserve District and the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency. Deb and her husband Wayne and daughter Claire have lived in the Town of Troy for 15 years. A member of St. Bridget Parish Church, Deb has served on the Parish Council and the Home and School Association. She enjoys hiking, biking, and kayaking in the River Falls area and at their cabin near Hayward.
Following the KRLT Annual Meeting in June, Board Member Peter Dahm was elected to the position of KRLT President, and Chris Bye takes his place as KRLT Vice-President. The KRLT Board thanked Robert Chambers for his leadership as President for the last two two years and are grateful for his ongoing support as a Board Member. We also thank Lenny Dayton and Dale Jorgenson for their service as outgoing Board members. Jorgenson was also recognized for sharing his time and talent with the KRLT as interim Executive Director and Volunteer Coordinator.
