Crews are gearing up for the second round of seasonal work funded by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. At the end of last year, the combined crews from the Metroparks of the Toledo Area, The Nature Conservancy, and Partners for Clean Streams treated over 1,400 acres of habitat while creating 29 jobs. This surpassed the project’s original goals and we’re only half-way done! The Metroparks and The Nature Conservancy still have plenty of habitat restoration to accomplish in the spring, including prescribed burns, canopy reduction, invasive plant species control, and more. We are excited to be a part of this successful, collaborative effort in restoring habitat within the Maumee Area of Concern. Thank you to those who have been part of this process and be sure to keep an eye out for future updates and milestones as we progress through the next restoration season!
