    Love it! I can't wait to go back in a few weeks! We'll have to try and make a trip this summer. Maybe get a few other cper's to tag along. I've got a place that we can stay in Atlantic Beach and I know of a few more sites that I would like to explore. Glad you had a good time.

    I might meet up also if I can find time. This will probably be the busiest summer of my life. Nice photos!

    I think I'm going to talk with everyone that has expressed interest individually and try and determine a week or so that everyone thinks they can meet up and then we could possibly carpool to the Croatan/Wilmington area and stay somewhere down there, probably my condo unless someone has a better suggestion. I am currently trying to obtain my collection permits for Croatan. So maybe this could also become a collection trip! ***Fingers crossed***

    Not interested in collecting anything unless requested, necessary, and permitted. Some powerline disturbance and prescribed burns benefit those plants. Have you contacted them regarding herbicide applications or something? I would not take plant materials from any land (private or public) without permissions from land owners and without a pertinent reason for it.

    I'm interested in a trip like this, but not collecting plants, it is just my opinion, I think this is like "poaching" in a legal way. I think the idea here is to conserve the place so that the next future CP'ers generations to come have the opportunity to enjoy CP's in their natural habitat just like I did.
    What I would love to do instead, is to clear some of the non-carnivorous plants so that the CP's can take over the area quickly and grow better!

    We should definitely arrange to meet for a trip like this, maybe contact each other a month before the trip and make sure this trip comes into effect.
    July sounds like the perfect month!
    Hope to hear from others!

    I enjoy seeing how plants in the wild dwarf plants in cultivation. Plants in their native habitats began my passion into growing them at home. I want future generations to observe their fury and wonder. My spring summer is already full. PM dates. I will try. Thanks for posting.
