Just saw this from Carl Mazur on the CP listserve. If I'm duplicating old news, I apologize.
If any of you live near the Abita Springs area of Louisiana and areinterested in rescuing some S. alata plants from an impending bulldozing, please contact Mr. Leo Sanchez.
He has arranged with the landowners for written permissions to access theproperty to rescue plants. He has done this on his own as a concerned citizen (thanks again Leo). Please contact Leo directly to makearrangements. His email is DeSanleo@aol.com <mailtoeSanleo@aol.com> or
his home phone is 985-809-0141. Do not contact the ICPS for information or
details about the site... we are not involved in this rescue, but rather are
making it public to aid in Leo's efforts.
"I was a little surprised today to find that a number of these brave little
plants are growing through the bulldozer tracks from the last clearing. That
is one hardy little booger. Someone was out there during the week and piled
a lotta brush and is doing more clearing." A guote from Leo.
