Join one of our workgroups as a volunteer and help us move Stillwater forward to be more resilient and sustainable. It's the everyday local citizens, like you, that make the real difference in our city's future.
Recognizing the vast amount of feasible work needed and the limited resources for city and township land management, the Natural Resources Work Group of Sustainable Stillwater MN offers a source of experienced individuals who can plan and manage projects that require neighborhood-level volunteer assistance. Sustainability is best reached through broad participation.
GREEN BUSINESS DIRECTORY

Businesses must apply to be in the Directory by filling out an application that has strict criteria about their products and practices from GreenAmerica.org.
Stillwater has been designated a Minnesota GreenStep City thanks in part to the efforts of the Sustainable Stillwater GreenStep team. The GreenStep program has guidelines to help cities achieve resiliency, sustainability, and better quality of life for its citizens.
