Jackson is the state capital and largest city.
In 2008, The American State Litter Scorecard, presented at the American Society for Public Administration national conference, ranked Mississippi "worst" of the 50 United States for removing litter from statewide public roadways and properties.
Even as scientific knowledge about the Mississippi River has grown, upstream development and the levees themselves have caused more severe flooding in some years. In addition, the levees are now seen to have changed the nature of the river, removing the natural protection of wetlands and forest cover. The states and federal government have been struggling for the best approaches to restoring some natural habitats that might work with the original riverine ecology.
The state is heavily forested outside of the Mississippi Delta area.
