Wildlife Outdoor Learning Festival at Noxubee NWR

MBWG hosted a booth at Noxubee National Wildlife Refuge’s WOLF (Wildlife Outdoor Learning) Festival on September 24.  Families, scout troops, and others from the community came out to the event and learned about Mississippi’s native wildlife.  The MBWG booth featured an informational display along with a mist netting activity where kids could participate in a mock mist-net event.  Catching plastic bats, weighing, measuring, and releasing them gave participants an opportunity to learn about Mississippi’s bats and how biologists study them.
