Kleinstuck Preserve 
Stewards of Kleinstuck










Kalamazoo is a cool city for many reasons, but the one reason that many find it a cool city is shown in the pictures to the left.


The Kalamazoo-Portage area is home to many nature preserves and parks. The 50 acre Kleinstuck Preserve pictured to the left is a little hidden treasure that is extremely valuable to those who have walked the trails.

With over 20 preserves and parks in the area, Kleinstuck Preserve is special since it is nestled inside a quaint neighborhood just off of Oakland to the east of Western's campus.


The Preserve, donated to the State Board of Education in 1922 by Caroline Kleinstuck, is gently upheld with support from Western Michigan University.

The Preserve, centered by a marsh, was designated to be used for "educational and scientific purposes". However, those fortunate to have ventured the paths around the marsh and through the woods would have you believe it should have been dedicated for "beautiful and serene views."


For now, enjoy the remaining photos and set some time aside to visit one of the hidden gems in the city that help make the Kalamazoo area cool.


Update May 2008 - Over the winter months, a group of area volunteers, the Stewards of Kleinstuck, have embarked on an initiative to ensure that local native growth exists within the preserve. Take a look at their planning and work so far.
