Dahomey National Wildlife Refuge

Detailed Description

This picture, taken June 6, 2008 at Dahomey National Wildlife Refuge near Benoit, MS, shows a shallow pond in a former agricultural area planted with hardwood tree species typical of restoration areas in the Mississippi Delta region of northwestern Mississippi. The taller trees in the background are a remnant tract of the original bottomland hardwood forest once dominant throughout the lower Mississippi Valley floodplain.
