Teacher Resources

Welcome to LTMCP’s Teacher Resource Center!

The Land Trust for the Mississippi Coastal Plain believes that part of our mission to conserve, promote and protect open spaces and green places includes fostering a sense of connection to develop watershed stewardship in others – starting with our children. South Mississippi’s forests, waterways, and historic sites are fun to explore; however, most people don’t realize that the health of these resources depends largely upon those who live near or play in them.

Your students can be the key to healthy natural resources.  By understanding the science behind the natural balance within a watershed, we hope to inspire in your students a true commitment of stewardship for the great treasures of coastal Mississippi communities.

Will you help?

This resource center has been provided for you, the educator, to investigate and explore the natural characteristics of the watershed unique to your community: Old Fort Bayou, Red Creek, Turkey Creek, Tuxachanie-Tchoutacabouffa, Upper Bay St. Louis, West Boley Creek as well as some of the history of our coast. These links are filled with lessons, study guides and exploration designed specifically for each watershed and property.  We encourage you to use the lesson plans, activities, virtual field trips, maps, photos, videos, and links provided. Please check back often as we often add new ideas to our resource center.

Thank you for partnering with the Land Trust for the Mississippi Coastal Plain and investing in our greatest resource – the children of the Mississippi Gulf Coast!
