Neighboring Communities and Counties

While UWRF and the Institute commonly reference their geographic and service relationship to the St. Croix River watershed as "The St. Croix Region," UWRF has a very unique commitment to its three closest contiguous counties and the communities within them. This is especially important as we think about economies of scale that contribute in real terms to local self-sufficient models for energy, food, water, shelter, and transportation, not to mention exportable surplus. The examples at right are some of the most important relationships we have in realizing the sustainable community development objectives we have set for ourselves.
