Save the Maumee

"Save Maumee Grassroots Organization was formed to create awareness about the conditions of the Three Rivers in Fort Wayne, IN, while facilitating ecosystem restoration projects to help the entire Great Lakes Watershed. Ultimately, we are trying to repair and improve the the St. Joe, St. Mary, and Maumee Rivers to help reverse years of pollution. Revitalizing the St. Joe/Maumee Watershed will protect and restore the environment, while improving the economic, aesthetic and recreational value. We are organizing projects that place a high priority on monitoring, developing and restoring rivers with a positive environmental impact."
