Stop 11 - River Bank Vegetation

Take a look at the vegetation growing on the banks of the river. The shrub growing here is named Silky Dogwood. It does well in moist areas and is able to spread and overhang the banks of the river. It
produces valuable purple berries for birds in the fall and provides cover for ducks and other wildlife. The vegetation helps stabilize the banks of the river. Overhanging branches also function as cover for fish and other wildlife foraging in the river. It is also important for shading the river and maintaining cooler water temperatures which holds more
oxygen and prevents algal blooms.
