The Mississippi river vaguely flows through Drift Island and creates an orthofluvial zone. Through this zone you can find dense vegetation and an abundance of sand and sediments. An orthofluvial zone is built up by deposition of fine sediments. This allows old growth strands of cottonwood and spruce to develop. It is an area of a floodplain dominated by mature stage plant succession. During flooding events the build up of sand and finer sediment of the orthofluvial zone increases. This orthofluvial zone serves as an exemplar site because of its large size and accessibility.
