As you can see from the above images, the habitats of the Dowagiac are badly degraded because of human intervention. Yet nearby the river are examples of Riparian Wetlands, Northern Mesic Forrest, Southern Swamp and others distinctive habitats. We hope to post images of some of these in the future, maybe associated with a restored Dowagiac River System.
