River Connection Event: A River in Recovery
From degradation to paddling destination, the St. Louis River Estuary is undergoing an inspiring transformation. Since the designation of the St. Louis River Estuary Area of Concern in 1987, many partners have collaborated to clean up the river. The impact of this work is becoming clear. There is a revitalization within the river communities as well, including better access to the river, new trails, and hopes of restored relationships to the river.
The St. Louis River Alliance is hosting a River Connection event on Tuesday, March 21st from 6:00-7:00 p.m. at Wussow’s Concert Cafe. There will be a short presentation on the history of the river, current restoration projects underway, and an open discussion on what the public hopes to see along the river.
This is a chance for the public to give input on how to experience the St. Louis River and ask questions about the construction projects happening in and along the water. $20 Super One gift cards will be awarded to the first 50 participants who fill out the River Connection Survey and live in one of the 18 focus neighborhoods mentioned below.
River neighborhoods include Carlton, Cloquet, Cody, Denfeld, Fairmont, Fond du Lac Reservation, Fond du Lac neighborhood, Gary-New Duluth, Irving, Lincoln Park, Morgan Park, Norton Park, Oneota, Riverside, Scanlon, Smithville, Spirit Valley, and Thomson.
Though this event is open to all, participants must be over the age 18, live in the focus neighborhoods mentioned above, and complete a physical survey to qualify for the gift cards. There is a limit of one gift card per family or address.
