About Us


How We're Helping

Friends of Sugar Creek is a non-profit environmental organization dedicated to restoring and protecting Sugar Creek and its tributaries throughout West Central Indiana. Formed by Dean Ford in the summer of 1987, Friends of Sugar Creek has worked persistently to accomplish this task for 30 years.  Past and present projects include "Kids, Canoes, and Crinoids" an educational outreach, bi-annual creek clean-ups, a family friendly float trip, and the Sugar Creek Canoe Race sanctioned by USCA. We believe Sugar Creek is a "Hidden Gem" and hope you do too.
