This year's Family Friendly Float Trip is scheduled for Saturday, June 15. We will float from the Sugar Creek Campground to the Sugar Creek Public Fishing area on Offield Monument Rd..
As always, we have set aside 15 free canoes and a few kayaks for participants who don't have their own. We will give a safety talk at the beginning and use designated leaders and sweepers to help make sure that you and your family have a safe and enjoyable trip.

Rain barrels represent a great way reduce runoff and overflow to Sugar Creek while providing a cheap and convenient way to water your garden and flower beds.
We have partnered with Crawfordsville's Sustainable Initiatives organization to participate in a discounted rain barrel ordering program. Those who place an order for rain barrels now (by May 24) will be able to pick them up on June 8.
