White River Conversations

Sunday, September 26, 2021

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.

Meadow Reach, Sept. 26, 1 p.m.
River Road Park, 12575 River Rd., Carmel, Ind. (weather dependent)

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. In case of very inclement weather, participants should check the Hamilton County Parks & Recreation Facebook page for updates. The Taylor Center does have indoor capacity and will run rain or shine.

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.

Both the Conversations and art canoes were supported with generous gifts from the Nina Mason Pulliam Charitable Trust and MIBOR.
