The Kinnickinnic River Land Trust, in partnership with the River Falls Fly Fishing Film Festival (R4F) held in early March 2019, donated $1,000 to River Falls High School Biology Club, led by teacher Nicole Feldmeier. These funds will go a long way replace leaking and irreparable waders and repair kits. Thanks to Lunds Flying Fishing Shop in River Falls for stretching these dollars even further and giving these students a great deal on new gear. Here's to exploring the Kinni and its watershed!

The Kinnickinnic River is a nationally recognized Class I Trout Stream located in Pierce and St. Croix counties in western Wisconsin. The river is 22 miles long, its watershed covers 170 square miles, and it drains into the St. Croix River, a federally designated wild and scenic river.

The KRLU is a membership organization whose mission is to work with the community to conserve and protect the beauty and health of the Kinnickinnic River and its watershed. Learn more at www.kinniriver.org .
