If you can't find Murdock Jemerson behind his desk at Lansing Parks and Recreation offices, you may find him out enjoying the fruit of his labor. His pride for Lansing's nationally-recognized River Trail is apparent when he talks about his frequent bike rides and tells you all about the latest additions and improvements. Here is a man whose love of nature, his career and the Greater Lansing area are definitely entwined.
