Kankakee River Paddle

Join the Northwest Indiana Paddlers for the annual Everglades of the North Paddling Event now on June 2 in coordination with the Newton County Wild weekend of events. Long ago the Kankakee River Basin hosted a diversity of wildlife that truly rivaled the Everglades. Much has been turned into farmland, but some fragments still exist of it’s former glory.

NWIPA is a non-profit organization dedicated to developing the region’s paddling resources and opportunities, providing environmental stewardship of the region’s waterways, education, and to be a link between the region’s paddlers.
