We met with the landowner of the northern most pitcher plant bog in Virginia yesterday. The bog is a short walking distance from Meadowview. We now have a price from him, $1200.00, for a one year renewable lease on the bog which will allow us to do clearing and bring in visitors. The lease matter is now before our board.
One question the landowner had was:
"How many people are interested or care about the plants in this bog?"
So.. I ask you to comment and tell me if you are interested or care about this bog. We had a story on this site in our 2009 newsletter (see newsletter link at www.pitcherplant.org and read Central VA Preserve story).
Also, please spread the news on this story and have people contact me at email@example.com to tell me they care. I will compile the data on who cares and let you know the result.
