    This year's auction beneficiary information

    All of us at NASC are proud to announce that a portion of the auction
    proceeds (the lesser of $1500 or 50%) will be going to a 5 acre site
    in Georgia managed by The Nature Conservancy (TNC). In fact it's the
    last site of its type in the state of Georgia.

    Carnivorous plant species found here include the Federally endangered
    green pitcher plant (Sarracenia oreophila) and sundews
    (Drosera). This is a unique site that needs to be
    maintained.

    The proceeds from last annual auction went to provide a much needed
    burn at Myrtle Head Savanna managed by TNC, North Carolina. It
    started an anti-poaching campaign in Brunswick County, NC and help
    fund a plant rescue in Florida.

    While in 2008, NASC auction proceeds benefited Splinter Hill Bog
    Preserve managed by TNC of Alabama.

    So please do your part and donate an item in the upcoming auction.
    You will not only help maintain the Sarracenia oreophila site,
    but also allow us to save more carnivorous plants this year.


    Sarracenia oreophila is listed on the US Endangered Species Act and
    CITES Appendix I.

    I have not been on enough to look around to see if this is posted, but since you brought it up,
    I am now curious, where does the rest of the proceeds go?

    Also, I do want to say that I think you all are having a real eventful year with this,
    as it appears this year in particular is full of "Auction problems and situations"!
    It should be interesting to see how things all work out in the end.
    (I myself, would need a vacation after dealing with everything I have seen happening here!)
    Good Luck!
    Experience is the best teacher. At least it used to be.
    But then, common sense isn't so common anymore, is it.

    The rest of the proceeds, though not yet earmarked, will go towards funding operational costs (diseminating information, postage for shipping out plants, plant supples like pots & pete, etc).

    We are also contantly looking for other organizations like this one, and our previous beneficiaries, that need our assistance.

    Some assets are also retained for travel.

    For example, last year we sent Mark to FL on a rescue mission.

    That's great! Thanks for the info. Would there be any chance for future NASC auctions in entertaining the idea of buying land currently still at risk in order to preserve the native fauna there?
    Also personally I think if this was a biannual thing, it'd still be a huge success. I understand there's a LOT of work that goes into prepping these events but I'd be the first to help out in anyway possible! I've contacted board members regarding helping out or volunteering my time but have not heard back...

    Hey French

    Who'd you contact? I'll go light a fire under their butts.

    Bi-annual? Are you trying to KILL me? Man.

    As far as volunteers go...we always need those "in reserve."

    Thanks for volunteering, too....If you're in Louiville....hmmm....gotta talk to the boardies to see if we need you for anything in that area....

    I've also contacted at least one member about volunteering and haven't heard back either.
