Working with the community to conserve and protect the
beauty and health of the Kinnickinnic River and its watershed.
The Kinnickinnic River is a beautiful and healthy trout stream flowing through River Falls and western Wisconsin. It is surrounded by scenic bluffs, native prairie, family farms, and forests. It is home to rare and endangered plant species and plenty of open space and scenic vistas. The river has been designated a Class I Trout Stream worth protecting.
The Kinnickinnic River Land Trust (KRLT) works with the community to preserve natural resources and scenic beauty. The KRLT has protected almost 3,000 acres of land and ten miles of shoreline along the river since 1993. We kicked off our 30th Anniversary on July 1, 2022, celebrating 30 years of conserving, protecting and connecting.
Our board, staff, members, and volunteers are dedicated to ensuring this river remains healthy for future generations. Please read our position statement regarding the proposed race course development in River Falls. We invite you to learn more about the Kinnickinnic River and support our efforts!
