Dinner Cruise to Celebrate Mondale's Love of Scandia and the St. Croix

Eat like Walter and Joan Mondale while cruising the river they loved — and celebrate the 55th Anniversary of the Wild and Scenic Rivers Act.
When they were first dating, Walter “Fritz” Mondale took his future wife Joan canoeing down the St. Croix River, meandering along the shores of Scandia. “We were in that canoe an hour and a half, and it worked,” said Mondale later. “We were married … a month later.” Such began Mondale’s 60+ year commitment to protecting the St. Croix, where he and Joan later shared a cabin overlooking the river on the bluffs of northern Scandia.
