AMORY, Miss. (AP) — Amory resident Martha Dalrymple has donated 34 acres of land to the city of Amory for development of nature trails.

Dalrymple tells the Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal ( ) that there’s a slough where trails can go around and through.

The trails will be for non-motorized use where pedestrians can enjoy hiking, walking, running and bicycling. The trails will also be wheelchair accessible.

The city and Wildlife Mississippi have applied for a $100,000 grant to help develop the trails.

Amory grant administrator Jamie Morgan says once completed, the trails will offer education and recreational opportunities as well as showcase the different natural habitats in the area.
