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.

It is with regrets, that the Kids, Canoes & Crinoids event previously scheduled for Saturday, July 17th, 2021 has been cancelled due to forecasted water levels exceeding 3 feet, which is dangerous and too high for canoeing on the creek.
This event will not be reschedule this during 2021, but we do hope conditions will be favorable next summer and have tentatively scheduled the next Kids, Canoes & Crinoids event for Saturday, July 16, 2022 . . . so please mark your calendar.
