I disagree with Mr. King’s assessment of “tent city” not being in its native state.  The US Coast Guard trailer park was removed from “tent city” approximately 30 years ago.  Since then this area has recovered and is filled with many native plants and trees, such as American Hackberry.  During Superintendent Baerlin’s tenure, Landscape Architect Rick Dorrance re-seeded the area with native grasses.
