John Ford Home, Golden West Cemetery, Trail of Honor
We look at some history and honor as we visit the John Ford home in Marion County, one of oldest homes in the state, we visit a lost cemetery brought back to life in Port Gibson and we take a walk through the Trail of Honor held each year in Jackson.
Little Lending Libraries, Big House Books, Mississippi Book Festival
We investigate what’s behind the little Lending Libraries popping up around the state. We look into the Big House Books project that sends books to prisons and we go to the Mississippi Book Festival in Jackson.
Sky Lake Wildlife Management Area, Shroomdom, Central Mississippi Turtle Rescue
We’re going a little wild as we take a leisure paddle through the ancient cypress trees of Sky Lake Wildlife Management Area and learn why these trees are so important to our state. We learn how to pick mushrooms in Poplarville at an agritourism farm and “look out for the turtle in the road” as we visit a turtle rehab facility in Jackson.
