FULTON, Miss. (WTVA) -- It's a day for getting back to nature.
That's the idea behind the annual MSU Itawamba Extension Center's Progressive Agriculture Safety Day.
Itawamba County third graders are finding about a variety ways to get to know nature better.
Stations were set up at the Jamie Whitten Center in Fulton.
Children are being given advice about seat belts, bicycles, bullying and how to spot poisonous plants.
The dangers of tobacco is another station.
"If we can get them early. If we can get them to never, never take that first puff or put the tobacco in their mouths, hopefully they won't have to worry about trying to quit," said Mississippi Tobacco-Free Coalition representative Helen Boerner.
Children are also taught about water safety during the day-long event.
