Commercial Appeal – Old Forrest, Old Fight

From the article:

Last spring, state Sen. Beverly Marrero and state Rep. Jeanne Richardson, both Democrats from Midtown Memphis, introduced a bill in the General Assembly, HB2563/SB2415, that, with the help of the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation, would establish the Old Forest State Natural Area.

In response, city officials began drafting a proposal for presentation to the City Council that, with the help of the Land Trust for Tennessee, would establish a conservation easement covering the forest and perhaps more of Overton Park.
