Land To Lake Initiative is a way to get involved in protecting the water resources of the Maumee River Watershed throughout Defiance County.



The Maumee River Basin is the largest watershed in the entire Great Lakes system. Actions here on the land in Defiance County have an impact on the water resources of Lake Erie. We believe that everyone can make a difference!


Join your fellow residents and local community groups in efforts to “Save Lake Erie”! From Planting a Tree to Backyard Conservation Projects like Composting to Stream Monitoring there is something for everyone and everyone can do something!

If you are interested in getting involved or have any questions please feel free to contact us!
