The Mississippi Coastal Plain is a patchwork of diverse habitats and histories that can be found nowhere else in the world. These irreplaceable plant and animal communities include tidal and freshwater rivers, oxbows, tidal and freshwater marshes, pine savannas and flatwoods, upland pine forests, and bayhead forests and swamps. These ecosystems are inter-dependent, and they play essential roles in the quality of life in South Mississippi. These places are productive, fragile, and beautiful.
Thanks to land preservation organizations called “Land Trusts,” land can be preserved for future generations through donation, conservation easements, or sale to the Land Trust. We welcome everyone, landowners and non-landowners, who share the stewardship ideals of the Land Trust to join with our organization to protect our great resources.
