Silver maple, elm, basswood, and ash dominate the forest; other trees include swamp white oak, cottonwood, willow, river birch, and hackberry.
Openings in the canopy due to elm mortality have a dense understory of prickly ash, gray dogwood, buckthorn, and young trees.
Sand bars and ephemeral pools along the river add considerable diversity. Nesting birds include these uncommon species: cerulean (Dendroica cerulea), Kentucky (Oporornis formosus), prothonotary (Protontaria citrea) and mourning warblers, winter wren, and brown creeper.
Ridges of sand support oaks, but the slough margins are nearly pure silver maple.
Vining plants and lianas are found in abundance: virgin’s bower, wild yam, moonseed, wild cucumber, woodbine, poison ivy, carrion flower, and grape.
