The Refuge is replete with wildlife, including migratory birds, river mammals and scores of fish and other aquatic species. The area also has riparian forests. These transitional forests are found along waterways, like the Ohio River. While subject of frequent flooding, the forest protects against shoreline erosion and safeguards the habitat for important aquatic creatures and plants that keep the river healthy.
