A nature center is next step for trails » The Commercial Appeal:
After setting up bridges and hiking trails meandering through the area, the 'logical next step' for DeSoto County Greenways is a nature and environmental center to link all the pieces together.
'We're pushing ahead pretty hard,' said Larry Jarrett, Greenways coordinator for the DeSoto County Economic Development Council. Gatherings this spring and summer will convey the Greenways message, and the pitch for funding to expand the Greenways vision already has reached all the way to Washington.
A presentation earlier this month to the state's congressional delegation on the proposed Mississippi Wildlife Rehabilitation and Nature Center near Arkabutla Lake 'went very well and was well-received,' said Jarrett, who was part of the 27-member delegation from DeSoto.
