Protecting and Preserving Wetlands

Vanishing Wetlands

A Special Place for Wildlife
Birth of an Organization
In the summer of 1985, political and business leaders announced plans to create a major new port authority and build a 700-acre commercial barge shipping center on this floodplain.
The Oxbow is a broad floodplain where the Great Miami River empties into the Ohio. This area where three states - Ohio, Indiana, and Kentucky - come together, is near Lawrenceburg, Indiana, seventeen miles downstream from Cincinnati.

Early settlers on this continent found the forests and grasslands interspersed with swamps, ponds, and marshes. But now 55% of America's wetlands have been drained and we still lose more than 400,000 acres of wetlands every year.

9 A.M. to Noonish


Yep, the water is going down.  That means the trash is stationary and can be picked up.  To participate, you need to be able to walk, carry and lift up to  10 pounds.  It’s probably a good idea to be up to date on your tetanus shot as well.

We will work in teams and supply trash bags, gloves and grabber tools.  If you have your own grabber tool, please feel free to bring it along.  Mud will certainly be present, so boots are a great idea.  Trucks are welcome. There are no restroom facilities in the oxbow, although there are some in nearby businesses.

Those interested will be treated to LaRosas after the cleanup.

 Please email meg@oxbow if interested in participating.  I will respond with details and a form that needs to be completed and brought to the cleanup.
