One of the most important aspects of a watershed is the plants. If it wasn’t for all the plants that grow in, on, and around the Floyds Fork watershed area, it probably wouldn’t be there for all of us to enjoy today. Not only do the plants add to the appeasing serenity of the Floyds Fork ecosystem, but they also keep erosion to a minimum and help to keep the water clean.
In the Floyds Fork area you can find many different types of shrubs, trees, vines, and various wildflowers.
