Audubon Kicks off Construction of New Pascagoula River Conservation and Education Center

“This Audubon Center is a good example of public-private cooperation to advance a good cause, in this case the conservation of the Pascagoula River watershed and its importance as a natural asset in South Mississippi. I look forward to its completion,” said Senator Cochran.

“The Pascagoula River ecosystem is one of Mississippi's many jewels,” said former Governor Barbour. “By preserving this special area, we now have a one-of-a-kind destination for our residents and the many visitors each year interested in seeing the wildlife variety in this undisturbed system. Having a first-class education center will only enhance the nature tourism opportunities for the Mississippi Gulf Coast.”
