White River Education and Ecology Center

Connecting community through a shared vision of the white river

The Conner Prairie White River Education and Ecology Center is an opportunity for Conner Prairie, higher education institutions, research organizations and neighboring municipalities to come together to create environmental education, programming, and research. It is envisioned that the facility for these programs, with an event center, offices, and conference space, would be housed in a modern building of sustainable design situated on the west side of the White River. The Center will allow visitors to experience the White River and its role in the regional ecosystem and will complement other planned environmental and programmatic improvements in this area.
