    Meadowview Grant - "Pitchers for the Public!"

    Hi Folks:

    We just got a grant from a local foundation in Fredericksburg for our proposal to protect Virginia Sarracenia purpurea genotypes on our 3 acre preserve in central Virginia (we're in a fund drive to pay off the balance on the note, $10K). Here's the link to the story:
    http://fredericksburg.com/News/FLS/2...2032011/604803

    We should have more details about the grant proposal on our web site www.pitcherplant.org in a few days.

    Sincerely,

    I saw this on my smart phone and caused a lot of confusion among my friends in a late night car ride. Excellent news!

    Hi Folks:

    Good news! We received the official letter that our proposal, "Pitchers for the Public!" will be funded. The final rubber stamp committee meets next Tuesday. The grant of $56,500, from the Virginia Land Conservation Foundation, will pay 50% of the cost of purchasing the 14 acre Gatewood/Wilson tract and pay off the note on 3 acre Sheridan tract as part of our Central Virginia Preserve. See 2009 newsletter for details.
