In this section you will find the video-story about the Simeto River that has been presented to the Mississippi Communities by the Editor (GP), during her Fulbright Fellowship at Mississippi State University as a Visiting Student Researcher (September 2012 - June 2013) at Landscape Architecture Department. In addition, you will find her field notes, organized into another video-story that is a sort of trailer for a forthcoming publication.
Tale n°1. Mississippi Delta.
This story is about the alluvial plain of one of the most important rivers in the world, with a complex history, rich of water, but how long water is going to last? What did it happen here? Who lives and works here? Which are the main activities and challenges? Who is going to take care of its cultural heritage and natural resources? Who pays attention to water?
Tale n°2. Mississippi Scenic Rivers.
In 1999, Mississippi enacted a voluntary program, linked to the National Wild & Scenic Rivers Act, to promote conservation and stewardship for rivers that posses unique wildlife, historic or cultural values, through a network of landowners. How has it gone to end?
Tale n°3. Pascagoula.
There is just one river left in continental USA that has not been transformed by hydraulic infrastructures like dams and levees. How is it going for this river today? Who is taking care of it?
