Free Paddle Day (Clean-Up Event)
August 27 @ 8:30 am – 1:00 pm EDT
This clean-up event will focus on two stretches of the river north of Conner Prairie and at Conner Prairie. The longer trip will depart via shuttle bus from Conner Prairie to the drop-in location up river and then paddle/float back to Conner Prairie. This trip will take between 2.5-3 hours depending on how much time is spent cleaning up trash or other debris. Participants doing the shorter trip will stay at Conner Prairie and clean-up the half-mile stretch around the river’s horseshoe bend. This trip, designed for young families, will take between 1-1.5 hours depending on how much time is spent cleaning up trash or other debris. Participants will be provided trash bags and gloves and are allowed free entry to Conner Prairie for the day. Clean-Up Paddle Days include a two-person canoe, so plan to paddle with a friend. Registration requires a refundable $20 deposit. Deposit is non-refundable to no-shows.
