The Moores Creek National Battlefield's 88 acres encompass a variety of landscapes ranging from dry pine forests to a small, wet-pine savanna. Moores Creek National Battlefield travels through the park and is a tidally influenced "black water" creek with considerable cypress growth. The park maintains checklists for birds and flowering plants. Restoration work has been underway since 1996 on the savanna.

The Moores Creek National Battlefield Vegetation Inventory Project delivers many geospatial and vegetation data products, including an in-depth project report discussing methods and results, which include descriptions to vegetation associations, field keys to vegetation associations, map classification, and map-class descriptions. The suite of products also includes a database of vegetation plots, and accuracy assessment (AA) sites; digital images of field sites; digital aerial imagery; digital maps; a contingency table listing AA results; and a geodatabase of vegetation, field sites (vegetation plots, and AA sites), aerial imagery, project boundary, and metadata.


The products of vegetation mapping projects are stored and managed in the National Park Service's Data Store, a repository for documents and publications relating to park resources. From the highlighted items below, click on the type of information you are looking for.
