Explore the 81-mile Pascagoula River, the last unregulated major river system in the lower 48 states. A tour begins in brackish water (a combo of salt- and freshwater) and leads into freshwater. Along the way you may see many types of birds including osprey, bald eagles, red-winged blackbirds, and herons, as well as alligators, beaver, and otters.

Or check out the 66-mile Wolf River, named for the red wolf once found throughout the southeastern U.S. You won't see red wolves today, but wildlife like fox, coyotes, deer, turkey, rabbits and birds make the area home. Take a canoe or kayak trip (self of fully guided) to experience the transition from piney woods to saltwater marshes on the journey to the Gulf of Mexico.

The Jourdan River BlueWay and the Old Fort Bayou Blueway offer birding and wildlife observation from a canoe or kayak. The Old Fort Bayou Blueway meanders through the Mississippi Sandhill Crane Wildlife Refuge and other conservation properties affording the observer the opportunity to see the native habitat of wildlife - and maybe even an endangered Sandhill Crane.
