A Winding Wildlife Protector

In the natural process of carving away sediments from their banks, rivers and streams meander back and forth across the land. Often times, sharp curves in the river form a loop which is gradually shut off rom the flow of water. The area which is taken out of the river or stream's pathway is termed an oxbow. Oxbows are very important for storing floodwaters and provide excellent wildlife habitat.
Oxbows serve as spawning, nursery, and food production areas for fish and provide seasonal habitat for migrating birds. Oxbows not only benefit endangered species, but other species important to the river and people, including catfish, bass, crappie, sauger, walleye and waterfowl.
