Next Indiana Campfires: White River (Mounds State Park area)
Event Details

There’s a 2,500 acre stretch of uninterrupted woodland lining the White River as it flows through Delaware and Madison Counties. During this four-hour paddling trek, we’ll cover eight miles, experiencing the beauty and tranquility of the water while learning about efforts to conserve this vital stretch of Indiana river via the Mounds Greenway. Ticket price includes canoe/kayak rental (if needed) and a campfire meal, as well as shuttle back to our starting location. Each trek is co-led by a humanities scholar and a naturalist. Along the way, we stop to read short writings by Indiana nature writers. Each trek concludes with a shared meal and discussion around a campfire.


TRAIL DIFFICULTY: Moderate (The paddling isn’t difficult, but due to length of trek, we’re designating this experience as moderately difficult.)
