JACKSON – Visitors will get the opportunity to “dive” into an underwater adventure in Ocean Bound!, a national traveling exhibit at MDWFP’s Mississippi Museum of Natural Science, from January 26, 2019 – May 12, 2019. “We’re hosting this exhibit so our visitors can see how everyone’s actions on land affect our ocean,” says Charles Knight, Museum Director. Touring the exhibit is included with museum admission.
Make it rain in a large 3-D watershed model! Pilot a full-size two-station “submersible” from mountain stream to the ocean. Be a biologist. Guide “water” safely through a hazardous maze. Flip paddles and divert “pollutants” as they travel through storm water drains. Discover how river otters made a comeback. Spot the polluters and be a Watershed Warrior! What can YOU do in your watershed to protect our ocean? Find out in Ocean Bound!
Ocean Bound!, was developed by the Sciencecenter and funded by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association (NOAA). The exhibit is sponsored locally by the Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks, the Mississippi Museum of Natural Science Foundation, Feild Co-operative Association, Inc., Sanderson Farms, Inc., The Walker Foundation, Ergon, and Trustmark.
