Proposed Projects

The Brown's Creek Watershed District has taken an active role in protecting and restoring Brown’s Creek, one of the few remaining designated trout streams in the Twin Cities Metropolitan Area. Located in the state’s smallest watershed, Brown’s Creek  stretches from the large wetland complexes located in the northern portion of the watershed through a landscape dominated by rural development and hobby farms to the more urban portion of the system where it traverses a steep, heavily wooded ravine before entering the St. Croix River.

Brown's Creek Restoration - BCWD has identified a project that will improve approximately 2,000 linear feet of trout stream habitat in Brown’s Creek in Stillwater from McKusick Road just upstream of Brown’s Creek Park to just downstream of the Brown’s Creek State Trail.
