Final rest

Tuesday, June 2, 2015

While researching my story on Charles Torrey Simpson, an early naturalist in South Florida, I learned that he is buried in Woodlawn Cemetery. Today, with help from cemetery employees, I found the grave. The story appears in the next issue of The Tropical Garden. Here is the stone that marks the plot that is the final resting place of the Sage of Biscayne Bay.

A modest stone for a champion of our natural heritage
