Bringing Nature Back

From the Sunherald dot com:

Live Oaks are being planted along the Gulf Coast.

It will take many years before their replacements reach the grandeur of the originals, but the new Live oaks being planted will be spread along the Coast from Gulfport to Pearlington.


Volunteers planted five Live oaks at the Humane Society of South Mississippi on U.S. 49 in Gulfport.

Other planting sites were Clower-Thornton Nature Park


Turkey Creek in Gulfport,


Railroad Park in Long Beach


War Memorial Park in Pass Christian,




as well as sites in Pearlington, Bay St. Louis, Waveland, Lakeshore and Henderson Point.

Three Live oaks are being planted at the foot of the Bay St. Louis Bridge.
