Our first clean-up of the year has been rescheduled for May 4 at the Sugar Creek Public Fishing Area/Bachner Nature Reserve on Offield Monument Rd. We'll meet at 10 AM to pick up trash, perform trail maintenance, and pull garlic mustard from the woods. If water levels permit, we will also conduct a creek clean-up. The event will take place rain or shine, so bring gloves and a jacket. Lunch will be provided for all volunteers around noon. All participants will also be given a free t-shirt! Please contact Doug Calisch with questions and to reserve your shirt.

We couldn't have asked for better conditions for the 2012 Family Friendly Float Trip. 59 participants took advantage of perfect weather and good water conditions to enjoy canoeing and kayaking on Sugar Creek.

Thank you to all of the volunteers who helped with today's clean-up despite the bad weather. Sugar Creek is now free of 15 more tires, ~200 lbs of trash, and a loveseat!

Nature Park Captures State Honor
The Crawfordsville Nature Park was the topic of a lot of discussion during Tuesday’s City Council Committee meeting, but that all seemed somewhat moot when Mayor Charlie Coons closed the meeting with an announcement about the park.

Sugar Creek Nature Park Ready for Visitors
Despite the rain over the past two days workers from the Crawfordsville Park and Recreation department completed the building of the final five stations on the Sugar Creek Nature Park.
Work on the seven outdoor classroom shelters on the east side of the road was completed in late May and early June. The work on the ones on the west side of U.S. 231 were completed Thursday.
