Vanishing Wetlands

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.

WE NEED A TRUCK!

 

It doesn’t have to be pretty.  It does need to run well.  We will do the legwork on the legal front AND you could get a tax donation.  Don’t trade that truck in—help us out. Email Meg@oxbowinc.org
