White River, below & above the surface

White River is the subject of both an online presentation and a welcome news story!

This coming Friday, January 22, beginning at 1 p.m., Friends of the White River is co-sponsoring “Below the Surface,” a free online presentation about how fish and other macroinvertebrates are faring below the surface.  Presenters include biologists and water scientists from the Indiana Department of Natural Resources and the Indiana Department of Environmental Management. Learn more.

Also, today’s Anderson Herald-Bulletin is running a story by reporter Don Knight about a new 50-acre nature preserve across White River from Mounds State Park. The Hidden Canal Nature Preserve is a project of the Red-tail Land Conservancy and ensures both sides of the free-flowing White River will remain undeveloped.
