Geology is dramatic in this area of Georgia in many of the ways that geology is dramatic in the Ridge and Valley province of the northwest corner of the state. Ancient sand ridges along the northeast banks of blackwater rivers support plant and animal communities adapted to dry, hot conditions containing impressive dramatic species, such as indigo snakes, gopher tortoises, the rare Georgia plume, turkey oak, and longleaf pine. Blackwater rivers, like Ohoopee, Canoochee, Satilla, and Willacoochee, exemplify the image of world-famous south Georgia swamps with their alligators, snakes, and other spectacular wildlife communities. Georgia's "great river," the Altamaha, is formed here by confluence of the Ocmulgee and the Oconee as they run to the sea.
