9 days, 2 states, and 141 miles on the river is what the local Grassroots Organization, Save Maumee is gearing up to do.

The group will be canoeing along the Maumee in Fort Wayne and ending in Toledo.  The mission of the trip is to educate and raise awareness of some of the problems currently plaguing the waterways.

For the first time GPS enabled canoes will allow the group to document problems they see along the way.  Allowing people at home to log on to the computer or smart phone and see the progress of the trip as well as any problems that may arise.
