Thank you Google for this small token but it does not compensate for the destruction of natural wildlife habitat, or the loss of heritage trees, that have accompanied this business and others' growth on the bay shore.

Good news. Folks grown native milkweed the food source for the monarch caterpillar. I had 4 caterpillars this year in my yard and hopefully more next year.
