Not a three hour tour: local environmental group to paddle 140 miles for river quality

Save Maumee is a Fort Wayne-based grassroots environmental organization. The group is focused on improvement and preservation of the Upper Maumee River and the surrounding watershed. They work with local government and the public to accomplish these goals.

Along with volunteers, the group began a river adventure today in Fort Wayne. It will conclude in Toledo, Ohio. They will canoe for eight days and will cover approximately 140 miles of the Maumee River. Along the way they will map locations for future cleanup and will plan outreach, education, and recreation opportunities. Additionally, the trip will raise awareness of water quality issues in the Maumee River.
