Grassy Island Wetland Restoration

Lucas County | Maumee River Watershed

This project is located north of the opening between Grassy Island and the Cullen Park path in Maumee Bay. Flow from the Maumee River will be directed through a restored flow-through wetland, into protected shallow-water areas that will support wetland vegetation, trap excess sediment in the water, process excess nutrients, and create new fish and wildlife habitat while maintaining navigation access and enhancing recreational opportunities.  

Project size: 100 Acres
Partners: Toledo-Lucas County Port Authority & City of Toledo
