Insider's tips

6 Signs of Spring in the St. Croix Valley

Fresh Spring Air.
It's time to get outside!

1. Native Spring Ephemerals are Blooming

Catch them while you can! These early and late spring wild blooming plants don’t last long. These wild growing woodland plants take advantage of the sun before the deciduous trees and shrubs leaf out and cast their cool, dark shade onto the forest floor. Look for Trillium, Rue Anemone, and Wild Columbine to name a few. Take a hike on one of our many area trails and count how many blooms you can find. Try a trail inside Interstate Park in Taylors Falls MN or Interstate Park in St. Croix Falls, WI and catch a glimpse of the Wild and Scenic St. Croix River too!

Waterfalls & Wildflowers

And a few more of our favorite spring things to do!

The weather is warming up and it’s the perfect time to get outside for a springtime adventure! Shed your winter jacket and head to the St. Croix Valley for some amazing things to do this spring.
