The Wolf River

The spring-fed Wolf River rises in north Mississippi and flows northwest through Fayette and Shelby counties to join the Mississippi River at Memphis.  Carving a green passage through 90 miles of forests, fields, and communities, the Wolf's upper reaches are lush wetlands of unmatched natural beauty that help to recharge or drinking water aquifer.  Its lower stretches contain refuges of floodplain forest in the heart of Memphis.  The Wolf River is vitally important, protecting our drinking water and providing outstanding recreational and educational opportunities. A natural treasure, the Wolf River belongs to all of us.
