There will be a Fall Creek and Delaware Lake clean up on June 1st, 2013 9am - 3pm meet at the Sycamore shelter house. Depending upon the number of volunteers there will be a limited number of canoes and kayaks taking on Fall Creek and others will launch into Daleware Lake cleaning up the shore line of trash and fishing line. I realize that there is a Southwestway trail building kickoff planned the same day but it you are interested in working with the Friends of Fort Harrison State Park and other volunteers come join us. The park would like for your to sign up on http://fallcreekcleanup2013.evitebrite.com to register. There will be lunch provided. If you bring your own canoe or kayak please bring the Personal Flotation Device (PFD) they are required. Fort Harrison management will make any rain event calls. That evening the Indianapolis Symphonic Band will be playing at the base of the sledding hill at 7:30pm. Bring a picnic and your favorite drink!

January 12, 2013 will be a Hiking trail building day with REI in the new campcreek area and continued bridge work with Paul Arlinghaus. Yes, this is a hiking trail started by AmeriCorp in 2012 and HMBA has offered to help connect the dots. REI is helping also so we could potentially get allot done in a short amount of time. Stay tune as details develop and come out and help.
