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 Florence.
We look at some individuals who’ve turned their passion to art. We visit light photographer T. J. Legler, spend some time with Master Knife Maker, Paul LeBatard, as he shows how he makes his famous knives in Vancleave and we visit Judy Noble and her Fabergé-inspired eggs.
Delicious Delta tamales, Twisted Burgers in Columbus, and foraging in the deep woods.
A foraging forester identifies edible plants in the deep woods. We taste delicious tamales at the Delta Hot Tamale Festival in Greenville. And we take a road trip to Columbus to discover the scrumptious secret of Twisted Burgers. Walt visits Mitchell Farms and learns how they entered agritourism.
Protecting the Least Tern, shelter pets with Pilots & Paws, and an animal sanctuary.
We fly south to the Gulf Coast to learn what it takes to protect the habitat of the Least Tern. We take to the skies with volunteers of Pilots and Paws as they help deliver shelter pets to their new homes. It’s a Cat’s Tale as we take a look inside Cedar Hill Animal Sanctuary in Caledonia and see how they provide a safe-haven for exotic animals.
