Join the St. Croix River Association and fellow woodland owners as we explore the woodlands of the watershed from the water on the wild and scenic Namekagon River, Wisconsin’s moving National Park.

Connect with local forestry professionals to learn more about native forest types, woodland wildlife, area forest health issues, and forest management strategies to help improve your own woods. We will paddle from County K Landing to Whispering Pines Landing in the Danbury area, a 9.9 mile trip on a fairly gentle stretch of river.


Costs: $45 for equipment rental and shuttle and $25 for BYO Boat and Shuttle

Wasp Watchers Field Training

July 16, 2019

1:00pm - 2:30pm

Concerned about Emerald Ash Borer in your forests? Attend a FREE Wasp Watchers field training!

Wasp Watchers is a citizen science project that engages volunteers in the biosurveillance of Emerald Ash Borer (EAB).  A native, stingless, ground-nestingwasp called the smoky winged beetle bandit (Cerceris fumipennis) hunts for wood boring beetles including EAB.  Citizen scientists can intercept the foraging wasps using an aerial net and the beetle prey can be captured and identified to determine if EAB is present at that site. Volunteer and help with EAB early detection!


This free 1.5 hour long field training will provide an opportunity to learn about the EAB biosurveillance process with hands-on opportunities to try it yourself.  Equipment will be provided and participants will learn to identify the Cerceris wasp and nests and learn how to use an aerial insect net to capture the wasp and collect its beetle prey.  Plus, this training fulfills continuing education/advanced training requirements as a Master Gardener or Master Naturalist!
