Diverse habitats in this watershed include: internationally important tidal wetlands; riverine habitats valuable to migratory fish, native fish, freshwater mussels and other aquatic species; floodplain forests and other riparian habitats valuable to migrating songbirds and many other species of plants and animals; sandplain, old field grasslands, and agricultural fields valuable to grassland-nesting birds and early-successional species; and a variety of forest types, including large areas of relatively unfragmented northern forest, valuable to nesting migrant birds and many other plant and animal species.
