A Visit to Wisconsin's Own National Park

Wednesday, June 20, 2018

We were so lucky to have a break from the spring rain for a beautiful walk along the Namekagon River in Trego! The Namekagon River Trail is part of the St. Croix National Scenic Riverway, which is a national park right here in Wisconsin! This year is the 50th anniversary of the founding of the St. Croix National Scenic Riverway, and I was honored to present a proclamation to Riverway Superintendent Julie Galonska proclaiming today to be 50th Anniversary of the St. Croix National Scenic Riverway Day in Wisconsin.

We were join by members of the local community, Washburn County Tourism, and park rangers who pointed out some interesting sites along our walk. After the walk, we stopped at the Namekagon River Visitor’s Center, which is a great place to learn about northern Wisconsin’s waterways!

We had lunch at The Potter’s Shed, and after lunch we painted Japanese raku pottery in their studio and watched the fascinating pottery firing process. The Potter’s Shed is such a fun place to visit! There really is something for everyone in Trego!
