Maumee Bay State Park Wetland Restoration

Lucas County | Coastal Western Lake Erie Basin

This project will restore a wetland that is dominated by non-native, invasive Phragmites grass to a marsh with native wetland vegetation. The restored wetland ecosystem will be reconnected with Lake Erie by a fish-passage and water control structure so that nutrients in the water will be filtered and captured and wildlife habitat will be expanded.

Project size: 137 Acres
Partners: The Nature Conservancy
