Welcome Center exhibit a hit

Published 9:58 pm Friday, June 22, 2012

The Mississippi Welcome Center at the bridge was turned into a Children’s Wildlife Museum. It was wonderful with exhibits, videos, wildlife guides and refreshments.

BJ Lyle, director of the welcome center, provided a beautiful presentation of Mississippi’s natural resources.

The visitors were delighted and the children were excited and attentive to the wildlife presentation. The children were able to touch a live snake, turtle and a small size alligator. I could not touch them myself, not as brave as the Vicksburg’s Grove Street Day Care children.
