Wildlife Habitat Limits Visitors

JACKSON -- There is a place in Mississippi where a "quiet zone" limits the entrance of human beings.

It is called Tara, a 20,000- acre property located 35 miles north of Vicksburg on Eagle Lake and the Mississippi River.

A wildlife habitat, Tara offers visitors the chance to view bald eagles, black squirrels, wild turkeys, deer, coyotes, doves, and rabbits.

Fish native to Tara's waters include bass and catfish.

Tara provides guides for fishing and hunting; photography, and special activities such as camping, horseback riding, walking/hiking and wildlife watching.

Executive retreats and conferences are available at the property, with full-service lodges for day and overnight use.

For more information, call Tara Widlife Management Services at (601) 279-4261.
