Indiana Outdoor Groups
While we hope that you will participate in Pay It Forward Now programs here in Indiana, there are many other organizations that stand ready to help with your next outdoor adventure and get you “off the couch”. Here are a few:
Revere’s Riders is a 501C3 non-profit, affiliated with the Civilian Marksmanship Program, National Rifle Association, and NV Firearms Coalition. We have over a hundred volunteers across the nation who actively promote traditional marksmanship, American history, and civic engagement.
Pheasants Forever Central Indiana Chapter
Pheasants Forever and the Central Indiana Chapter (#642) are dedicated to the conservation of pheasant, quail, and other wildlife through habitat improvement, education, and land management programs. The primary goals of our chapter are to protect, restore, and enhance wildlife habitat through our Habitat Program, to offer reasonably priced seed for habitat improvement through our Seed Program, and to develop and foster youth conservation education through our Youth Program.
Central Indiana Wilderness Club
Founded in 1982, the Central Indiana Wilderness Club (CIWC) is a non-profit volunteer-run club organized for the purpose of providing affordable wilderness adventures. Based in central Indiana, our activities include backpacking, car camping, day hiking, bicycling, canoeing, kayaking, rafting and cross-country skiing.
Hoosier Canoe and Kayak Club
Hoosier Canoe and Kayak Club (HCKC) holds paddling events on rivers throughout Indiana all year long as well as training sessions and year-round practice in an indoor pool.
