2000 Delta Wildlife EXPO DELTA WILDLIFE would like to encourage you to attend the 2000 Delta Wildlife EXPO. The Delta Wildlife EXPO opens Friday, November 3rd, at 3:00 p.m. and will continue through Sunday, November 5th, at 5:00 p.m. The EXPO will be held at the Washington County Convention Center in Greenville, Mississippi.

Delta Wildlife's mission is to conserve, enhance, and restore the natural and wildlife resources of the Mississippi Delta. It is the region's largest and oldest charitable, non-profit conservation organization. Delta Wildlife has improved more than 67,000 acres of wildlife habitat in the Mississippi Delta through wildlife management plans, wildlife food plots, wetland restoration, fisheries restoration, and reforestation in the year 2000 alone. All proceeds from the 2000 Delta Wildlife EXPO go to support these and similar efforts in 2001.

The Delta Wildlife EXPO Committee and staff have worked hard to produce an exceptional wildlife show this year. Educational presentations on topics such as Quail Management, Trophy Deer Management, Turkey Calling, Wild Game Cooking, and Duck Calling will highlight the seminar schedule. And with attractions such as the "Monster Bucks of Arkansas," "The Rock," and "The Traveling Fish Tank," the Delta Wildlife EXPO is the place to be for all outdoor enthusiasts and families.

Exhibitors from all over the country will be at the EXPO selling and displaying the latest hunting equipment, camo clothing, decorative items, wildlife art, 4-wheelers, 4-wheel drive trucks, deer stands, archery equipment, optics, books, boats, fishing supplies, game calls, game scents, crafts, carvings, and food. From the weekend warrior to the most discriminating holiday shopper, there will be something for everyone at the 2000 Delta Wildlife EXPO.

Don't forget the kids! Delta Wildlife has several attractions and events that are sure to please an army of children. "The Rock" is a 28-foot wall that simulates the face of a mountain. Your kids (or maybe even you) can strap on the safety harnesses and try their hands at rock climbing. Or maybe your children are more interested in "out-doing" their buddies. If that's the case, a friendly shooting contest may do the trick at the Daisy Air Rifle Tournament.

A new competitive spirit will also be materializing at this year's EXPO. For bragging rights, cash money, and lots of prizes, sports-men, women, and children can compete in a number of sporting events at the EXPO. The second day of the EXPO will start off at sunrise at the Greenville waterfront, as the 1st Annual Delta Wildlife Bass Tournament will begin.

At 8:00 a.m. Saturday, the Sporting Clays Fun Shoot will begin at Levee Break Outfitters. At 11:00 a.m., the National Wild Turkey Federation will host a children's turkey calling contest for "Jakes" on the main stage at the EXPO. And at 2:00 p.m., the Archery Tournament will begin. Awards and prizes will be presented for each of these events on the main stage at the Delta Wildlife EXPO on Saturday afternoon.

In addition to the hundred exhibitors, 42-foot aquarium, 28-foot mountain, trucks, boats, and ATV's, there is another reason to come out to the Delta Wildlife EXPO. The Washington County Convention Center has recently undergone an extensive expansion, adding a new main stage, restrooms, and other amenities. The Delta Wildlife EXPO will serve as the first public event held at the building since the expansion and renovation work has been completed.

So come out to the 2000 Delta Wildlife EXPO and enjoy!
