Updates to White River Guide

Have you seen what’s new on the White River Guide app, the Friends of the White River online resource for visiting our favorite waterway? The app now includes a section about Lower Fall Creek, from Geist Dam to the confluence with White River, showing launch sites, nearby amenities, and other features. Check it out!

Give yourself bonus points if you spot the listed feature that is unique to Indiana waterways, and is one of only a few hundred in the world. (Hint: It involves water passing above water. How cool is that?)

Two Friends events this week

We have two events happening this week and hope to see you there!

First, Thursday, September 22 at Hotel Broad Ripple: Join Rusted Moon and Keen for a special screening of “Live Monumental: The Movie.” The movie follows a group from Keen as they drive across the country raising awareness about the need to shift public lands into protected status. Due to the days being long, people are encouraged to come and hang out, play some games and enjoy some libations before the screening. You must RSVP through the Rusted Moon Facebook page.

Then, Saturday, September 24, 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.: Look for us among the fun at the Rocky Ripple Festival in Hohlt Park.
