Houlton families enjoyed the St. Croix Valley Art Bench Kick-Off event with a walk on the new bridge, information about the upcoming project, and a family picnic. Houlton students will be designing the “gathering space” for the bench area during the year. Students will also be part of the construction of the bench area spring of 2019. The St. Croix River Valley Art Bench Trail offers a unique opportunity to explore works of art created by local youth and community partners with a local artist. The Art Bench Trail extends from St. Croix Falls to Prescott.
