Bottomlands

[Table of Contents]

The Bottomlands in Floyds Fork Watershed are often used for the same things as the upland agricultural areas are. Farming and recreation occur here and currently this land is slowly turning into woodlands. Tall goldenrod has begun to invade the pasture grasses paving the way for ‘heavier’ vegetation.  There are many  types of fauna that dwell in this habitat.
