Wonders On The Wabash is a free rafting experience designed by the TCPWQ for sixth grade classes in Tippecanoe County. The students participate in an all-day environmental education program on the mighty Wabash. There are stops along the way to do experiments, along with an “On the raft” learning. In order to make this event possible the TCPWQ relies on the help of volunteers. There are volunteer opportunities on both land and water.
This year Wonders on the Wabash will take place on September 5, 6 and 7. To volunteer register at Eventbrite. Please be sure to select the date you would like to volunteer and if you would like to volunteer all three days please be sure you are registered under all three dates. Please be sure to specify if you prefer being on land or water. All volunteers must pass a background check conducted by the Tippecanoe County Sheriffs Department. Upon completing registration on Eventbrite you will receive an email from us containing information for the background check. The cost of the background check will be covered completely by the TCPWQ.
