Man donates land for safe portageNovember 23, 2018
By The Associated Press
KOKOMO — A central Indiana man has donated a small plot of land for a portage trail around a dam that's one of the most dangerous sections of a scenic river.
David Rayl donated one acre last week to the nonprofit Northern Indiana Citizens Helping Ecosystems Survive Land Trust.
Another nonprofit called the Wildcat Creek Guardians will build a gravel trail this winter on the land along Wildcat Creek, which winds 84 miles through north-central Indiana.
The Kokomo Tribune reports that path will allow paddlers to pull their canoes or kayaks from the river to avoid a low-head dam in Kokomo.
Such dams can be deadly because people can get trapped in swirling waters at their base.
The Wildcat Creek Guardians received a $5,000 grant from the Northern Indiana Public Service Company.
