Several grassroots efforts are underway to connect people in central Indiana with their waterways. One of these is near the White River in Indianapolis’ Riverside community. Partners Groundwork Indy and Friends of the White River aim to build community trust by having youth from Riverside lead floats through the neighborhood.

WFYI’s Taylor Bennett spoke with Groundwork Indy Executive Director Phyllis Boyd about efforts to connect urban Indy neighborhoods with local waterways.
