The Flint Creek Timberlands
Replanting Our Nation’s Forests
Forest OverviewThe Flint Creek timberlands are located 35 miles north of the Mississippi gulf coast and border the heavily visited water park in Wiggins, Mississippi. The forest acts as a buffer to a 568-acre public lake which attracts numerous fishermen, swimmers and boating enthusiasts. Campers and hikers can also enjoy the sights and sounds on the nature trail.
The Flint Creek Timberlands Needs Our HelpHurricane Katrina was the deadliest and most destructive storm of the 2005 Atlantic hurricane season. The storm greatly affected the mixed pine tree forest surrounding the waterpark and campgrounds. The Mississippi Forestry Commission needs our assistance to replant more than 120 acres with longleaf pine trees. The reforestation efforts will provide benefits such as runoff filtration and soil stabilization.
