About the Scenic Communities Program -

To download a complete listing of resources click on the guide (11.4MB) or click here.


The primary focus of the Scenic Communities of Mississippi program is to provide valuable resource information to all citizens
in Mississippi. This “Resource Guide” serves as a clearinghouse of information that can assist with a wide range of subjects including conservation, green infrastructure, sustainable practices, air and water pollution. It includes over (21) subject categories related to the natural environment and the management of natural resources. Over (295) agencies and/or programs are currently listed.


The guide will be helpful for community development and individual citizens. Groups such as homeowner associations, civic clubs, home and business sites, military bases, parks and backyards are eligible for these programs. We hope you find this document informative and helpful in your pursuit to learn more about the environment while enjoying the many resources available in our state. Our former First Lady of Mississippi, Mrs. Pat Fordice, inspired this project.

 

The Mississippi Gulf Coast Chapter includes additional resources for coastal citizens. This is part of "ENVIRONMENTAL HARMONY- EDUCATE AND PARTICIPATE' campaign on the coast to provide more environmental education to more coastal citizens.
