White River Conversations – Protected Reach

October 10, 2021 - 4:00 pm

Riverside Park

Enjoy a series of casual free fall community conversations at seven park destinations along the White River in Marion and Hamilton counties and learn how the river connects to nearby places and people with an historical lens.

Historian Jordan Ryan, principal at The History Concierge, Indianapolis, will lead these one-hour informal programs as the conversation explores how the river either was impacted or sometimes ignored by the surrounding community as it grew over time.

Participants should bring a comfortable chair or blanket and note that all conversations will be held outside, as close to the river as possible. Exact directions to the conversation site will be marked at the entrance to each of the parks.

Each park also features 7 of the 10 art canoes created by local artists to raise awareness about the White River. The was project sponsored by the White River Alliance to raise awareness about water quality.
