The distinguishing features on this lazy float trip down the deep, wide Magnolia are not necessarily flora and fauna; however, the area does have more than its fair share. The first part of this trip is marked by something not usually encountered on other trips in this book: houses, beautiful and ornate, lining the banks; houses that reflect old southern style and charm. The river and its surrounding beauty still shine through. Alabama is a large state with diverse forms of plants and wildlife species. The Magnolia River is located in south Baldwin County, east of Weeks Bay, which is a small estuarine embayment off Mobile Bay containing approximately 3 square miles of open shallow water averaging 4.5 feet in depth. Weeks Bay is fringed with Spartina and Juncus marsh and swamp (with pine, oak, maple, and cypress trees, among others). Weeks Bay receives salt water from the Gulf of Mexico through Mobile Bay and fresh water from the Magnolia and Fish Rivers. It is a critical nursery for fish, crustaceans, and shellfish. Like the Mobile-Tensaw River Delta, the combination of salt water and fresh water makes Weeks Bay a diverse and fragile habitat for plants and wildlife.
