2021 - Bing Wong
Bing devotes his time to Friends of Mt Tabor Park as a Board Member, a Weed Warrior Crew Leader, and is involved in the historic preservation of the reservoirs. As a member of the Mt Tabor Neighborhood Association, Bing acts a liaison between the two organizations.
He has been described by Mary Kinnick as “a steadfast contributor in significant ways on the Board of Friends of Mt Tabor Park… And, no matter what the issue faced by the Board, Bing has weighed in with thoughtful, well-reasoned ideas.” Bing is also a valued member of the Weed Warriors team. Bing is usually the first crew leader to RSVP and it’s usually a “Yes.” He was there for the heat dome event in June, and worked in the rain at a small event last Sunday. Bing has also devoted many hours to independent projects in the park, including a grove of staghorn sumac near the Lincoln Street entrance, that was once completely hidden by Himalayan blackberry. (If you’re in that area take a look, it’s probably starting to leaf out.)
