TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) – RiverScape will be honoring a community leader at the 4th annual Explore Wabashiki event with the Max Miller Run/Walk.

The event will take place on September 30 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. in Bicentennial Park on the west side of the Wabash River where Max Miller, who founded many local organizations including Leadership Terre Haute, Terre Haute Tomorrow, and of course, Wabash River Development & Beautification, Inc., now known as RiverScape. 

The walk/run will follow the path of a project that Miller advocated for — the pedestrian connector. The connector allows pedestrians to enjoy a visible portion of the Wabashiki Wetlands, which acts as a natural filter for the adjacent Wabash River.

Miller and his friend Keith Ruble who was the Vigo County Parks and Recreation Department Superintendent at the time, began RiverScape by funding $8 million dollars into the 7,000 acres of the Wabashiki Fish & Wildlife Area.
