CELEBRATING 25 YEARS OF STORIES
25 years of protecting the environment: White River Alliance
This year, the Nina Mason Pulliam Charitable Trust is celebrating 25 years of community grantmaking in Indiana. To honor Mrs. Pulliam’s legacy, the Trust supports the White River Alliance in their efforts to protect and restore the White River.
The White River Alliance, alongside several Indiana conservation partners, advances water quality and management as well as improves the public’s appreciation and access to the White River. The alliance and 150 volunteer citizen scientists have been filling data gaps through the River Assessment Field Teams program. The program trains volunteers to conduct monthly water quality samplings in locations where there is little to no data available. RAFT volunteers learn rigorous testing protocols so agencies like the Indiana Department of Environmental Management can also use the data in their water quality assessments.
