The Crosby Arboretum is dedicated
to educating the public about their environment. This mission
is carried out by preserving, protecting, and displaying plants
native to the Pearl River Drainage Basin ecosystem, providing
environmental and botanical research opportunities, and offering
cultural, scientific, and recreational programs. The Arboretum
displays three basic habitats found in this ecosystem. They
are a Savanna exhibit, a Woodland exhibit, and an Aquatic exhibit.
Both drastic and subtle changes in landscape patterns can be
observed within each exhibit. In addition to the 104-acre interpretive
site, the Arboretum also collectively maintains 700 acres
of off-site natural areas that are preserved for scientific
