Profile Information

About Me:
Save Maumee has been my hobby and passion since 2001 when I became an activist and outspoken voice for The Maumee River, since it is the most polluted of the 3 rivers in Fort Wayne. Renewable resources need to remain just that "renewable" not polluted beyond use. We as a state have to act with a business-as-usual plan of action to serve ALL of us for sustainability. The country is in the middle of a "go-green" craze; how great would it be if our governor and our state were early adaptors to these eco-friendly ideals to be applied! Supporting Green public policies, such as tax breaks and other forms of assistance for industries that devote themselves to efficient use of air, soil because what we do in our homes, yards and businesses ultimately ends up downstream.
When we elect our government officers, we put faith that they will work with the people and for the people. Right now, the state has the opportunity to take a distinct path where we look forward at our actions today and see the possibilities for us to have a financially richer, healther and cleaner future for ourselves and the future generations of Hoosiers!
I want to be part of the solution and provide realistic restoration and sustainable practices for our watershed, holding all of us in the watershed accountable for what we do, or refuse to do. I will remain a driving force until I'm swimming in the Maumee with the children, instead of picking out shopping carts and tires.

First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.

Must it be so!?

Then who started the stupid plastic, green mesh, ah... let me guess... stupid city officials... but, oh they mean well....(sarcasm)
At 12:35pm on March 14, 2010, Ellen said…
Another question Abby, What is with all the green plastic mesh that is being exposed, and washed up past the flood zones into the trees, and such, we see a lot of this stuff on walks along the Maumee, and can't help but to think wildlife is getting entrapped in this stuff. Doesn't Save Maumee use natural mesh when laying seed mats?

Hey..... I will be by for that piece of rebar soon, gads it is wet out, one big swamp in our back lot!
The ducks haven't arrived yet, maybe too early.
Have you decided what you want planted on your spiffed up property, as far as natives? Spiderwort, N. Sea Oats, Jewelweed, Wild Asters, Obedient plant, Wild Ginger, maybe .....love from Leyland

The picture is from Eagle Marsh along the canal- tons of lily pads in the water! I'm not sure if it's normal- it was pretty wet out there that day... thanks for the advice! I'll be glad when it's over. : )

Hey there! I'm giving a presentation on wetlands next week- wish me luck! It's just for a philosophy class so no big deal. : ) I'm not talking to congress men and women- I can't even imagine how nervous I would be for that! Hope you are well... spring is in the air!

Ellen, the shelves are still there as of this morning!

Will speak for your rivers in D.C.

I AM READY! THANKS ELLEN - you rock
At 12:03am on February 17, 2010, Ellen said…
Thanks for the heads up ! I was already over that way earlier in the day, and didn't see anything, but I'll check again tomorrow for the shelves.
Yea, it is the grass root groups that get all the hard work done, then the city heads take over for the glory, which is the easy part, ain't it always so?1!!
Squeak loud in DC, and give my son a holler if you will. lol.........ellen

YEAH! I had a call from Dan Wire - another river advocate - call yesterday and say he had some exciting news...he never called by back (with our phone tagging)

I dont care about recognition ....I CARE ABOUT FIXING IT! If it were clean tomorrow and I could swim this summer I would stop squeaking!

I am so glad you thought of me Ellen!
Be well, pray for Spring!
