A new campground in Boyd Hill Nature Preserve in St. Petersburg, Fla., will honor Terry Tomalin, the long-time Tampa Bay Times outdoors and adventure writer who died five years ago, according to Tampa Bay Times.

The city council voted unanimously on May 20 to advance the campground’s name to second reading on June 3, when they will vote on it again.
