Our presenters will cover topics such as Indiana’s “water trails,” our state’s recreational water quality standards, the economic impacts of water recreation and recreational water quality, the projected effects of climate change on outdoor recreation in Indiana, and examples from a couple of Indiana communities whose programs and projects for have enhanced recreational opportunities.
