Water Action Cards

A House Unbuilt and 1 Mississippi sponsored a deck of trading cards featuring the “10 Actions You Can Take Now” for our waterways. Together, we are directing the well-being of the people, land, water, and wildlife of our St. Croix River and the entire Mississippi River watershed.

The trading cards feature artwork by 10 local artists. Pick up your pack today at ArtReach St. Croix.

Water Action Card Artists on Exhibit

Local artists Gil Graget, Mac Clegg, Emily Anderson, Mimi Exon, Deanna Grigus, Stephen J. Gates, Charlotte Schuld, Victoria Bradford Styrbicki, Kristen Prideaux and Tom Maakestad shared their work to make the Water Action Cards even more impactful and allowing us to see the intersection of art and nature in action.
