Complex

The Mississippi Children’s Museum and The Mississippi Museum of Natural Science held a ribbon cutting at Friday morning for the Spotter the Otter Adventure Trail and an outdoor pavilion at the LeFleur’s Bluff Complex in Jackson.

Public officials, including Lynn Posey, executive director of the Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries and Parks, Angel Rohnke, director of the LeFleur’s Bluff Complex and Emily Hoff, executive director of Mississippi Children’s Museum were in attendance along with Spann Elementary School for the ribbon cutting.

Posey said it was a beautiful day to celebrate the occasion with children, friends, public officials and Spotter the Otter.

“On behalf of MDWFP we would like to thank everyone who invested their time and resources to make this possible,” Posey said. “We have two award-winning museums today, but without commitment, leadership, and staff what you see today would not be.”

Susan Garrard, president, and CEO of the Mississippi Children's Museum

Susan Garrard, president and CEO of the Mississippi Children’s Museum, said the adventure trail and pavilion are great assets to the community and the theme for the year is “Heartfelt Gratitude.”

“We face many challenges running the museum to be what it is today,” Garrard said. “The spirit of gratitude to celebrate such an amazing project despite the challenges we’ve faced makes it worth it.
