St. Croix Valley

St. Croix Chapter is located in an area that at one time included large dry prairies. Today there are small oak savanna remnants that still contain some uncommon plants associated with those historic prairies. Our chapter works on a few of these, visits others to appreciate what is left, and educates folks on fire-dependent ecosystems. 

The St. Croix chapter covers Pierce, Polk and St. Croix counties in Wisconsin, and Washington county in Minnesota. We invite you to join us!
