This river was once flanked by the "big woods"?a thick forest of maple, basswood, elm, and other hardwoods. Today the river is bordered by agriculture, prairie and hardwood vegetation. This river is generally smooth, with a few class I rapids in the Forest City area. About rapids classes. Tell me more about this river's landscape, wildlife, and history.
