Activities


Water Festivals

The Friends of the Sauk River actively participate in area water festivals, such as the Middle Sauk Water Festival, the Lower Sauk Water Festival and the Three Rivers Water Festival. The Friends of the Sauk River are always looking for volunteer presenters and support staff for the festivals. Please contact us if you are interested

River Monitoring Projects

The Friends of the Sauk River have conducted and participated in water quality monitoring projects along the river and among the river's tributaries.

River Cleanups

The Friends of the Sauk River have adopted a portion of the Sauk River in the St. Cloud area. Our stretch of the river runs between Highway 75 in Waite Park and the 8th Street bridge. This area of the river will the target area for upcoming river cleanups. Our first cleanup took place in May 2008.

Canoe Library

The Friends of the Sauk River created a canoe library in the fall of 2011. The canoe library will lend canoes and equipment to people in the community who would not otherwise have access. Youth participation will be a special emphasis of the canoe library.

Paddling Events

The Friends of the Sauk River sponsor canoe and kayaking paddling events on the river to encourage positive interactions with the Sauk River. It is part of our efforts to Promote it, Paddle it, Protect it!

Visioning sessions

We are always looking for membership activities. On occasion we will hold visioning sessions to discuss new ideas. If you have some project ideas please email us.
