  • April 2018 for Earth Day we COMPLETED planting 2,780 trees along 1.4 miles of streams! Save Maumee Riparian Buffer Initiative planted 30 different species along the most degraded subwatersheds that lead to the Upper Maumee River and Lake Erie.
  • Lush Cosmetics, Charity Pot donated $20,000 to Save Maumee so we were able to provide toilets and hand-washing stations at our public events! They also bought all the stuff we wished for; sweatshirts and t-shirts with our logo, sew-on-patches, a billboard that will be up an  entire year, stickers, brochures and so much more!
