Three Rivers Festival – Parade & Raft Race – July 2014
Virgin Prairie Plant Rescue
This effort was arranged by LRWP & MVHC and Save Maumee Grassroots Organization. Groups worked together to assess this virgin prairie. It has not been disturbed since white man populated this area. Rescue was necessary to preserve the native species from this area and repopulate through seed distribution to other nature preserves to protect the integrity of the natives in the area. The plants will be replanted in appropriate areas along the Maumee and its tributaries for Save Maumee’s 9th Annual Earth Day in April 2015.
August 16 & 17th 2014 ~ MAP HERE: behind Turnstone between Clinton Street & Spy Run Extended – this area was a Native American campground first, then became a pump station area for the Erie Canal!
This is a lesson in preserving our native species diversity, to make the plant lineage cross pollinate with current species along the rivers and nature preserves; making the native plants, stronger and more resistant to disease, flooding and drought.
