UPDATE: This past Friday we celebrated a new gem on the Kinni! Because of over 100 donors, we were able to reach the fundraising goal of $500,000 and fully purchase and protect The Community Forest on the Kinni. It will be fully open to the public 365 days a year and we look forward to hearing about your adventures in the forest!
Kinnickinnic River Land Trust (KRLT) is launching a fundraising campaign to raise the money needed to purchase a key 40-acre, old growth forested parcel of land in the lower river canyon downstream of the City of River Falls. The parcel contains 1,500 feet of river frontage and includes the mouth of Rocky Branch. The purchase will connect the River Falls School Forest, which has been landlocked for years, to Glen Park and River Hills Park.
This is an extraordinary opportunity for KRLT, the community of River Falls, and the River Falls School District. “A purchase agreement has been signed with the JoAnn Ailport-Dreistadt Estate and we are excited to move forward with raising the funds needed to make the purchase of the property a reality,” states KRLT Executive Director, Charlene Brooks. Successfully securing this 40-acre community forest will enhance public access to the Kinnickinnic River, increase angler opportunities, protect Rocky Branch, provide space for environmental education, and expand recreation.
“We would like to thank the JoAnn Ailport-Dreistadt Estate and the School District of River Falls for their collaboration and for their commitment to making this beautiful forest accessible to the people of this community for generations to come,” shares KRLT Board President, Alison Page.
The Community Forest site is located in parcel A. Parcel B is the access road that will allow foot traffic only.

Either long-standing or new, we at the Kinnickinnic River Land Trust value our important volunteers and the continued effort to steward and protect the Kinni. Thank you so much for serving through our annual KinniRiverCleanUp over the last 26 years.
COVID-19 and the impacts its having on your communities are vast and we recognize that our collective day-to-day has changed. As a result, we are modifying this year’s event to promote our environment, while keeping each other safe.
Rather than an organized gathering this year, we encourage you this Earth Week, April 19 – 25, 2020, to get outside, explore, and pick up a little trash along the way. Take a stroll in your neighborhood or along your favorite spots on the Kinni and see how much you can pick up. We can work together during this time of seclusion to make a positive impact in our communities. Please use CDC recommended best practices for social distancing while out and about. KRLT is looking for additional ways to support volunteers this year in light of these changes and will be following up with more information. While you are out helping to keep the Earth clean, tag your photos with #kinnicleanup on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Show everyone that #natureisntcancelled
