The Mississippi Wildlife Federation recently recognized Ridgeland Mayor Gene McGee as MWF’s 2017 Elected Official Conservationist of the Year for his conservation-minded approach to governance. McGee has overseen the construction of 20 miles of multi-use trails and 4 miles of bike lanes, the passage of one of the first helmet laws in Mississippi, and the title of Bicycle Friendly Community. Ridgeland’s trail network spans across the city and connects with five parks including a national park and a large recreational lake.
