The inventory report addresses the cultural and natural resources of area, including location, access, ownership, land use, archaeology and history, climate, topography, hydrology, geomorphology, geology, soils terrestrial biology and aquatic-biology. The inventory identified 22 sites of prehistoric occupation and two historic sites. Unpublished preliminary soils information for the Wayne County side of the river was obtained from the Soil Conservation Service and is included in the Soils Map Folio set. Numerous rare, threatened or endangered species of plants and several species of animals were identified as potential inhabitants of the area. Aquatic sampling found the stream supporting several rare, threatened and endangered species of fish. Author
