Wonders on The Wabash

Wonders on the Wabash is a program created by the Tippecanoe County Partnership for Water Quality for 6th grade classrooms. The program allows students to experience the Wabash River during a 4.5 mile rafting trip from Tapawingo Park to Fort Ouiatenon.

This will be taking place September 14, 15, 20, 21, & 22.

Along the way, students test water quality, study native mussels, observe the fish of the Wabash, and learn the history of the river. The floating classroom exposes the students to the wonderful Wabash and all it has to offer, while teaching them the importance of water quality and how our everyday lives impact the water and environment around us.

Volunteers help keep spirits up while rafting, steer the raft, and review the provided information about the Wabash River with the students before their quiz at the end of the day.

All adult information is provided. A back ground check is required,  to the expense of Tippecanoe County Partnership. Lunch is provided at the end of the day for all participants. You can be paired with an experienced raft guide if you are not comfortable steering or teaching the students to paddle.
