Transportation

Row,row,row your boat gently down the stream! Ozark has long, flat-bottomed river boats that carry goods and people down the river if you want to take a trip on a blue, wet river.

Or you can take a ride on the shuttle.Not a space shuttle! Shuttles are like a train that take you around the area.

Environmental Dependence

Farming is very important in the Ozarks because people like to eat the fresh, sweet, juicy apples and squishy grapes. Logging is also very important. You have to get wood to build on buildings, make new houses and boats on the river. We can't forget the miners. Iron ore,zinc,sandstone and limestone are the jems on your weddings or fancy necklaces and maybe in your house.

Adaption & Changes

Logging, farming, and mining are important because you need sweet food for your stomach and there's nothing better than sweet apples. You need wood for houses and boats. All the ores are used for necklaces and other accessories. The lakes are very important for drinking water, transportation, and for the animals homes. We always need caves and high mountains for mining and tunnels.
