Enchanted Nature Trail

Henderson Point, Pass Christian, MS

Experience the wonder of nature through the interactive and educational Enchanted Nature Trail at Henderson Point. Designed with children in mind, the trail contains different interactive play stations including the marsh overlook, story circle, insect hotels, animal wood carvings and sign posts, and the vine tunnel.  Visitors are encouraged to create nature collages and fairy houses along the trail and in the story circle area.  A “fairy” house is situated near the story circle to provide storage for various items including paper and crayons for tree ring etchings, a variety of nature scavenger hunts, and other materials for schools and educational groups.

Future interactive stations will include a listening station and binoculars at the marsh overlook.  Other possibilities include a butterfly garden and berry picking.

Through multiple phases of development the Enchanted Nature Trail at Henderson Point (ENT) will evolve into a nature trail and activity center that engages the smallest of visitors through multi-sensory experiences based on art and ecology. This is a unique opportunity to create a place for children specifically that encourages creativity, curiosity, observation, and exploration of nature.

Please contact the office if your school or educational group would like to use the supplies.

Trail is located near the intersection of U.S. Highway 90 and Fort Henry Road in Pass Christian, MS. Turn North onto Fort Henry Road from U.S. Highway 90 and you will see a driveway on your left that leads to the parking area.
