Flora and Fauna on the Flint: Post Project Refection

Rivers are some of the most human impacted ecological systems in the world. The Flint River plays a major part in the lives of many Georgians. The plants and animals, or flora and fauna, of the river play a vital role in keeping the river system balanced.
Flora
There are many different species of plants that are apart of the river system.
