2.3.1 Vegetation

Land cover as classified by the Minnesota Land Cover Classification System (MLCCS) is shown on Figure 5.  Urban areas with moderate to high densities of impervious surface characterize the subwatershed, which is entirely developed.  There are some sizable areas of wetland and forest/woodland in the city of Minnetonka and in some locations along the creek corridor.  An extensive but narrow park system surrounds the Minneapolis lakes and Minnehaha Creek and along the Mississippi River.
