Slope Wetlands

Slope wetlands are those that are associated with groundwater seepage and they range in slope from nearly flat to vertical.  Seven types of herbaceous slope wetlands occur in Tennessee, including cliff wetlands (seepage cliffs and spray cliffs), fens, meadows, montane bogs, seeps, and wet prairies.
