The linear waterway and its vegetation  also serve as 
habitat corridor. 

Planted primarily with areas of prairie grass and lowland 
forest plantings, this wet environment affords movement, 
nesting, and foraging opportunities for a variety of wildlife. 
The patches of deciduous and evergreen woodlands that 
punctuate the corridor provide shelter and food for overwintering  
species, such as chickadees, nuthatches, and cardinals.
Because this corridor links to the Vermillion  River, it forms a 
vital connectionto the region’s wildlife habitat network,  especially 
as the watershed becomes more urbanized.
