Habitats of Georgia

PiedmontClick HERE to learn more about PiedmontPiedmont is located in between Georgia's Mountains and Coastal Plains. The word Piedmont means "foot hills". It is called that because the Peidmont region is very hilly and vast. It is also warmer than it is in the mountains, and less wet than in the Coastal Plains. The soil here is weathered and nutrient poor, so it is not the best place for growing. The Piedmont area has a great diversity of plants and animals that live here as well. The Piedmont habitat is where we live!
