JACKSON, MS (Ben Caxton) — The National Park Service will provide consultants to help create eight local parks and other recreation and conservation areas in Mississippi and four other southeastern states. Landscape architects and community planners will work with local communities to help plan parks, trails, greenways, and other open spaces through the park service’s Rivers, Trails and Conservation Assistance Program. In Mississippi they’ll help the city of Marks redesign the park where the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. began the Poor People’s Campaign, leading a mule train to Washington in 1968. The work will include new areas for hiking, biking, and paddling.[sc name=”twitterfollow”]
