abundant birdlife. Interesting aquatic plants abound, as well."

This was a very nice river for Kayaking. I don't think I would go swimming in it though since there were warning signs about mercury contamination. However, it was very enjoyable and scenic for Kayaking. There was a minimal current, so paddling was easy. We found an island in one of the connecting ponds which is very scenic and great for a picnic. I plan on doing it again.
