Editor’s Note: The owl in this photograph was perched in “Mary Agnes’ Tree” at the former Fred’s parking lot on South 8th Street. Mary Agnes White was an early tree hugger in Fernandina and she spoke out when the parking lot was under construction telling the city not to let the construction workers take down that tree. Thankfully she won and the tree still stands.
