The streambanks of Floyds Fork are covered with water willows, the most abundant aquatic plant in Floyds Fork.  Lizard's Tail, smartweeds, and pilk weed also cover the streambanks.  In some places marshes have formed along the banks and these are populated by cattails.  There is a rather large population of amphibians in this area as well as other animals.
