The Pascagoula River Audubon Center serves as a gateway to the largest free-flowing river in the lower 48 states where visitors can experience and learn about birds and wildlife throughout the year. The center also serves as a demonstration site for environmentally friendly concepts and a portal to conservation programs applicable to all visitors, local residents and tourists alike. A two-hour interpretive boat tour is also available from the center. Call for directions and hours.

The new center features a 5,000 sq ft center with an interpretive area. This area includes seven aquaria highlighting the river's aquatic elements ranging from fresh to brackish. There is also a nature-based fine art gallery highlighting the work of local, regional, and national nature artists through shows.

The grounds of the new facility hosts a native plant botanical garden showcasing native plants and their uses in bird and wildlife-friend landscaping. Historic elements include a restored 80+ year old "Scout Hut" serving as an outdoor pavilion and meeting room as well as a remnant portion of the historic Pascagoula Street Railway & Power Company trolley line that once connected Moss Point and Pascagoula.

The center is open Tuesday-Friday 9am to 5pm and Saturday 9am to 3pm.

We are excited to welcome the winners of Mississippi's Junior Duck Stamp Contest for an art exhibit in the Moss Point Fine Art Gallery! Join us on July 6 for its opening reception!

The Junior Duck Stamp Art Contest is the culmination of the Junior Duck Stamp educational program that teaches wetland and waterfowl conservation to students in kindergarten through high school. After studying waterfowl anatomy and habitat, students express their newfound knowledge by drawing or painting a picture of an eligible North American waterfowl species. Students then submit their artwork to their state art competition. The winners of Mississippi's 2017 Junior Duck Stamp Art Contest will be on display in the exhibit.

The Pascagoula River Audubon Center offers exciting, nature-based summer camp programming for a variety of age groups. Our Mini-Camps are perfect for children entering kindergarten or 1st grade!

Summer camp activities are based on the Mississippi state frameworks for Math and Science. Camp activities foster a “hands on, minds on” approach to learning, and prepare them for the upcoming school year. This encourages students to become excited about nature, data collection, art, and exploration.

Participants are in groups based on grade level, though special arrangements can be made to keep siblings/relatives or close friends together if it will increase the enjoyment and comfort level of our campers!
