Description: 

The Delta National Forest in Sharkey County Mississippi is home to a large bottomland hardwood forest, seasonally flooded timber and small swamps that drain into the Big and Little Sunflower Rivers. It is a popular destination for camping, hunting, fishing and wildlife viewing. The area is experiencing severe impacts including pollution of and damage to riparian areas and the detrimental erosion and widening of motorized trails. 

As one of the 2018 Leave No Trace Hot Spots, this protected area will receive a week of site-specific and targeted training, expert consulting, education programs, and service projects to help this threatened area on its road to recovery.
