St. Croix Bluffs Regional Park Reserve

Nature’s Art Gallery - FREE
June 6 - June 14

Park visitors are invited to see nature from an artist’s perspective with Nature’s Art Gallery, a new program at St. Croix Bluffs Regional Park Reserve. Walk the alternate trail along the river and enjoy spectacular views and natural elements like you would art in a gallery. Natural elements will be "framed" to highlight form, composition, function, and color. The ever-changing, natural surroundings will offer a different view every hour of the day. In these busy times, participants will gain a greater appreciation for the beauty of nature that is often overlooked. The gallery will be available for one week through June 14.

Share your photos on social media with the hashtag #WashCoNaturesArtGallery. Please note that the alternate trail is unmaintained and good walking/hiking shoes are recommended. Portions of the trail may not be easily accessible due to mud or fallen trees/branches. Entrance to the trail is located near the boat launch.

Additional Activities

Washington County Parks offers additional printouts and activities that you can complete at home or in the park of your choice! See At-Home Activities for more details.
