In order to bring this mission to reality, we strive not just to be the best "general store for nature lovers" but also to be "not just a store but a community resource."

As Mayor Leonardis introduced Freddy he shared with the audience how his own family and neighbors are in the store all the time purchasing seed & gifts and that his own home is filled with beautiful items purchased from The Los Gatos Birdwatcher. It was a very nice tribute to the work both John & Freddy have done for the city.
