219 GreenConnect host Kathy Sipple speaks with A Greener Indiana's Founder, Eric Stallsmith, live from the Quiet Sports Expo in Indianapolis.

Human-powered quiet sports are among the fastest-growing outdoor recreational activities.  Activities like, hiking, paddling, mountain biking, rock-climbing and fly fishing leave a small ecological footprint, but are as hard-core as the enthusiasts who practice them.  

The Quiet Sports and Outdoor Living Pavilion is the only event of its kind in the central U.S., and boasts nearly 100 exhibitors and unique features and attractions you won’t find in any other single location.  Need a dose of how-to?  Daily seminars are on tap from interesting experts who have been there and done that – from climbing Kilimanjaro to floating Southern Indiana’s Sugar Creek.

Eric and his wife also operate Indiana Outfitters, Indiana's premier outdoor information website. It is a rich resource for planning trips to Indiana's State Parks, complete with outfitter information, maps, weather, current river and lake levels and tirp reports.
