Look in any direction at Mississippi Sandhill Crane National Wildlife Refuge and you look back to an earlier time along the Gulf Coast. The landscape is flat, like a prairie. The ground, blanketed with impervious clay soil, is waterlogged and acidic. Yet here, a rich, colorful blend of rare orchids, carnivorous plants and other ground cover thrive under the scattered pines in one of the most species-rich plant communities in North America. This is the wet pine savanna ecosystem – the critical habitat for endangered Mississippi sandhill cranes, migratory songbirds and waterfowl, and many other wildlife species. The refuge protects and restores the last remaining wet pine savanna in the United States, and thus, ensures the survival of the rare and magnificent Mississippi sandhill crane.
The Administrative Office and Visitor Center is located one half mile north of Interstate 10, at Exit 61, off of Gautier-Vancleave Road. The refuge is open to visitors during daylight hours only. The Visitor Center is open from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. The Visitor Center is closed on federal holidays and Christmas Eve.
A visit to the Walter Anderson Museum of Art (WAMA) is an enchanting and unique experience. The Walter Anderson Museum was opened in 1991 and is dedicated to the celebration of the works of Walter Inglis Anderson (1903-1965), an American master, whose depictions of the plants, animals, and people of the Gulf Coast have placed him among the foremost of American painters of the Twentieth Century; and to his brothers, Peter Anderson (1901-1984), master potter and founder of Shearwater Pottery; and James McConnell Anderson (1907-1998), noted painter and ceramist.The watercolors, drawings, oils, block prints, ceramics, and carvings by the three Anderson brothers are all represented in the museum’s permanent collection. Adjacent to the museum is the Ocean Springs Community Center, home of Walter Anderson’s largest mural.Visit Website
