    Two very good organizations that buy and then protect cp and wetlands sites are

    Meadowview Biological Research Station

    and The Nature Conservancy

    Some of the best cp sites are owned and managed by these organizations and they are open to the public.

    If you want to support cp's these are two very good organizations to join and support.


    Schnell's book has some very disturbing stories about formal cp sites. It shows how fast these sites are disappearing.

    The book is good for finding the general area that a plant grows. I think that the ranges in the book are historical ranges and now meant to represent where plants are now growing.

    I agree on the disturbing stories part, it's absolutely aweful what people will do for money!

    I have a chance to buy 160 arces of wetlands. This is in Minnesota. I would like to see if there is any state help in protecting and caring for this habitat. It is listed within green space and no construction is allowed, but they can always change the standing of the land around. I own 5 arces along side the swap area. The 5 arces is grandfathered in so I can build a home on it, but I hope the rest stays green space.
    I am just like a Super Hero, but without the power or motivation.................and the funky suit.

    @ Copper: You should contact your state's Parks and Wildlife to findout about programs... Here, in special cases they will build boardwalks on the site to view the wildlife, I know you get some benefit; tax relief, portion of the profit, etc. I have only heard of it once, but hey, it's worth a try!

    It's also hard watching a bog dissapear because it is protected. We have a small 7 acre bog on our property (up here there's really no rules about building in bogs so our house was built on the edge of it) but every year it's slowly dissapearing. We've been here over 10 years and when I think about how small the bog and the lake in the middle of it have gotten.. it breaks my heart. The drosera used to be so thick they looked like a glittering carpet of little red jewels.. now they are being overgrown by shrubs and spruce trees. Worst of all the P. villosa is being pushed out as well. What our bog really needs is a wild fire..
    Heh.. try telling your parent you want to set fire to the back yard to improve the environment for CP's... I just don't know why she didn't take it well [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/rolleyes.gif[/img]
    At least Alaska is still big enough and unpopulated enough that thousands and thousands of acres burn in wild fires every year.. making the habitat better for a wide variety of plants and animals.. but I guess my bog is just out of luck.. unless I get really ambituous with a weed wacker ..
