Save Maumee Upper Trier Drain Plans 

This site is directly adjacent to the PREVIOUS SITE PLANTED SPRING 2019.

This project is Save Maumee’s eighth project, where we will be planting 480 native trees along 1,200 linear feet (by at least 25 feet wide) of the Upper Trier (Paul Trier Ditch AKA Grabner Ditch) on the  north/west side.

This wild site requires you to wear long pants and long sleeves & sturdy shoes! BRING THE FAMILY!

These projects are made possible through the federal Great Lakes Restoration Initiative (GLRI) and U.S. Forest Service.
