The Pascagoula River Audubon Center serves as the gateway to the Pascagoula River, its habitats, and the diverse assemblage of organisms that inhabit or visit the river basin throughout the year. The Pascagoula River is the largest, last, free flowing river in the lower contiguous U.S. states. Through education and conservation the Center connect visitors to nature.
In 1974, more than 35,000 acres of land along the Pascagoula was preserved for the public. This landmark preservation purchase was spearheaded by The Nature Conservancy to protect a unique ecosystem. It has grown to the current 70,000 acres that keep the largest free-flowing river in the contiguous United States one of the wildest. Wildlife abounds in the Pascagoula River, including some species that are endemic, or found nowhere else on the planet. Apart from providing visitors and students direct exposure and experience within such a rich environment, the center serves as a demonstration site for environmentally-friendly landscaping and a portal to nature-based programming for all ages.
