Mississippi’s diverse outdoor environment has something for everyone. Whether you love walking the coastal beaches, love to explore our state and national parks, or live for the abundant recreational hunting and fishing opportunities, Mississippi is an exciting place to explore nature.
Mississippi’s natural resources are vast, but not unlimited. Growing pressures from urban development, invasive species, and natural disasters demand scientific solutions and dedicated effort from everyone. The MSU Extension Service offers trustworthy, science-based information on a variety of topics, from managing wild hogs to making wise decisions about the family forest.

STARKVILLE, Miss. -- All of us live in a particular town, county, state and country. Just as importantly, we also live in a specific watershed.
Everyone on earth resides in and interacts with a watershed on a daily basis. Watersheds are natural landscape boundaries that define an area that drains into a stream, river, lake, reservoir or ocean. Watersheds can range from a few acres to thousands of square miles. They are also nested, meaning smaller watersheds make up larger watersheds.
