About 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. Along the way, students will have the opportunity to participate in education sessions to 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.
Wonders on the Wabash focuses on the importance of our ecosystem and instills a sense of stewardship in protecting one of our most valuable natural resources, water. The program has been designed to incorporate state standards in: agriculture, mathematics, physical education, social studies, history, economics, geography, and science.
