Alcatraz 5: Nature on the Island

POST #    1951

It's about time I wrapped up the Alcatraz posts, so here's the last one. The island isn't just home to the former penitentiary, but it's also full of nature. Any plants that exist today on the island are what remains from the original gardens that were planted once humans started to inhabit the island in 1848. Prior to that, Alcatraz was barren of vegetation, soil, and water. There were birds though, and birds are still on the island today. Lots and lots of birds.
