Why Would Someone Trash and Graffiti Al Sabo Land Preserve in Kalamazoo?
If you love our public outdoor spaces, parks and nature, you're sure to to be sickened by the graffiti and vandalism that took place recently at Al Sabo Land Preserve in Kalamazoo.
The park is located in Texas Township near Texas Corners. The West Michigan Trail Runners describe the special park:
The Al Sabo Land Preserve is a water pumping area for the Kalamazoo Utilities Department. It's often mistakenly called Au Sable but was in fact named after Albert Sabo who was the director of the Kalamazoo Department of Utilities until 1969. The preserve has over 25 miles of trails through woods and fields, and varies from flat and well trodden to rolling and wild. There is even a nifty boardwalk through one of the sections of the wetland that runs through the middle of the preserve. I have been exploring the preserve for over twenty years now and it still surprises me with trails and features that I hadn't noticed before. It also abounds with wild life, including squirrels, deer, coyotes, piliated woodpeckers, and even the rare massasauga rattler!
An overlook was vandalized with graffiti recently. Vlogger Andy Path discovered and shared the graffiti on his YouTube channel.
Note, there is a brief NSFW word that appears in the video.
