Abstract

James "Jimmy" Youngman is a longtime resident of the Gibsonton area near Hillsborough Bay and a former Audubon warden. In this oral history interview, Youngman discusses his family's history in the Tampa Bay area and the historical transitions the bay has experienced during his lifetime. Youngman recounts his time fishing and farming on the bay as well as his experiences with its avian and aquatic populations. He also recalls life on the Alafia River and describes various area islands, including Bird Island, Grassey Key, Green Key, Peanut Key, Sunken Island, and Whiskey Stump Key. He recalls the impact of dredging and an increasing population on the area's wildlife and vegetative environments. Youngman concludes his interview by sharing his experiences with Tampa Bay Audubon wardens, his time as an Audubon warden and his thoughts on bay restoration.
