Upper St. Croix River

The Upper St. Croix River watershed is located predominantly in the Minnesota/Wisconsin Upland Till Plain portions of the Northern Lakes and Forest ecoregion. This large, forested watershed covers over 1.3 million acres. Approximately 62% of the land in this watershed is privately owned, and the remainder is state, federal and county land or held by corporate interests.

The main concerns throughout the watershed are water quality, streambank stabilization, stormwater management, and wetland management.
