Stop 3 - River Dynamics

Rivers are very dynamic and changing. They are constantly eroding their banks and depositing new sediment. Here you can observe how the east bank is being eroded and the west side is receiving deposition. Note the vegetation and how the roots of the trees help stabilize the river’s bank. The eroded undercuts and the sand deposits are places that the spotted sandpiper and other wildlife will look for insects. The undercuts are sometimes used for shelter or predator avoidance by wood ducks and other wildlife.
