Take an interactive, self-guided walk along the Kinni and around Lake George on Saturday, April 22, from 9:30am – 11:30am. Visit 9 stations staffed by several community and conservation organizations to get your answers! You can visit all or select stations at your own pace. This is a family friendly event to share with your kids and grandkids! Tour maps will be available at River Falls City Hall.
This event is hosted by the Kinnickinnic Watershed Partnership as part of the 2017 St. Croix Summit at UW-River Falls. Click here for more information on the St. Croix Summit.
Here’s your opportunity to make a difference! Your participation is needed for our 23rd annual KinniRiverCleanUp at 9:00 a.m. on Saturday, April 29! Last year 140 volunteers showed that they care about the beauty and health of the Kinnickinnic River and we hope you will be part of an even larger turnout this year.
This is a wonderful way to explore the Kinni while collecting trash along its banks and making a difference to keep the Kinni cold, clean and free…forever!
If you’re an experienced paddler willing to clean up the river by canoe or kayak, please indicate that when you register. Kinni Creek Lodge and Outfitters is again generously volunteering the use of their kayaks as well as their staff and vans for this event. When you register, you must indicate in the Comments that you will be using one of their kayaks so we can coordinate with Kinni Creek Lodge the number of kayaks needed and the areas on the river to which volunteers are assigned.
Please click here to register. REGISTRATION MUST BE RECEIVED BY 5:00 p.m. on Monday, April 24. Then, on Saturday, April 29, meet at Glen Park Main Shelter in River Falls, WI at 9:00 a.m. sharp to receive your map and assignment. When you are finished, please join us for a lunch for volunteers sponsored by River Falls Rotary, The West Wind Supper Club, American Rivers, Bremer Bank-New Richmond, Catalyst Sports Medicine, Kinni Creek Lodge, Randy Cudd, Edward Jones – River Falls offices, Friends of the Kinni, Leitch Insurance Agency, Pierce County Democrats, River Falls Tire, St. Croix Gas, and Viking Coca-Cola.
