This corridor encompasses the heart of the ND badlands.  It is centered on the Little Missouri
River.  Common vegetative species
include: plains cottonwood, Rocky Mountain juniper, boxelder, silver sage,
greasewood, rabbitbrush, green ash, western wheatgrass, blue grama, little
bluestem, western snowberry, buffaloberry, and needle-and-thread. 

Conservation Issues

Disturbance from energy development and grazing overuse or
underuse constitute the greatest threats. Both of these factors also facilitate
the spread of invasive vegetative species.  

Land Use

The area is managed for energy development, recreation,
cattle grazing, and conservation.
