Raft the White River with Friends of the White River!

The White River is a complex ecosystem that provides many important ecological functions like wildlife migration and foraging corridors, nesting and reproductive habitat for everything from bats to mink to turtles and more. It is the very heart of our own human existence in central Indiana.

Since the late 1990s when the river was identified as one of the nation’s most threatened rivers and was devastated by a criminal toxic discharge that killed millions of fish, grassroots groups, non-profit organizations, and governmental agencies have been working to restore the river.

Join us for a guided rafting trip of the White River as we learn from a guide all about conserving and protecting the White River. Guides discuss history, shoreline and aquatic wildlife, riparian flora, environmental science, and water quality, all while engaging people in a first-hand look at Central Indiana’s most valuable natural resource.

Fountains of Hope, Help Build Water Purifiers!

More than 3.4 million people die each year from water, sanitation, and hygiene-related causes. Nearly all deaths, in fact 99 percent, occur in the developing world. A child dies every 45 seconds from a waterborne disease. ​Contaminated water is the #1 cause of death in developing countries. It is responsible for life-threatening diseases such as cholera, typhoid, dysentery, hepatitis, and giardia.

Fountains of Hope International is committed to the installation, integration, and teaching of safe water solutions for the poor and most marginalized persons via water purification.

Indiana wetlands absorb and hold excess water from storms, flooding and runoff. They are home to thousands of species, including a third of Indiana’s endangered species. But they are vanishing.
