Save Maumee Riparian Buffer Initiative projects are planting trees along perennial streams in these three sub watersheds.
1) Bullerman Ditch (map)
2) Six Mile Creek (map)
3) Trier Ditch (map)

* Save Maumee Grassroots Organization along side the U.S. Forestry Service grant was awarded by Great Lakes Restoration Initiative (GLRI) funding, to plant 2,780 trees between Spring 2016 – Fall 2018.  Projects were again funded to plant another 1,390 trees between Spring 2019 – Fall 2020.
* The trees we plan to purchase are listed above.  The trees will be planted on floodways & floodplains that are considered “flashy and violent.”
* Ideally trees will be in a 1-3 gallon container. Rarely, through approval, will bare-root trees be used. Some trees are OVER the size of a 5 gallon container.
