Honoring Tom Small

January 9, 2022

Kalamazoo Area Wild Ones honored Tom Small for his many contributions to environmental sustainability in our area, including landscaping with native plants.  The event was held on Zoom and included words from a number of speakers who have worked closely with Tom over the years on various projects and interests.

In Tom’s honor, we unveiled the plans for a bench that will be installed in Glen Park, a pocket park located in the Oakwood-Winchell neighborhood where Tom lives. Funding is being provided by KAWO and individual donors; the bench will be installed by the Stewards of Glen Park.
