    2010 NASC Online Benefit Auction

    It's almost time for 7th annual online NASC Benefit Auction to start.
    All of us at NASC are proud to announce that a portion of the auction
    proceeds (the lesser of $1500 or 50%) will be going to a 5 acre site
    in Georgia managed by The Nature Conservancy (TNC). In fact it's the
    last site of its type in the state of Georgia.

    Carnivorous plant species found here include the Federally endangered
    green pitcher plant (Sarracenia oreophila) and sundews
    (Drosera). This is a very unique site that needs to be
    maintained.

    The proceeds from last annual auction went to provide a much needed
    burn at Myrtle Head Savanna managed by TNC, North Carolina. It
    started an anti-poaching campaign in Brunswick County, NC and help
    fund a plant rescue in Florida.

    While in 2008, NASC auction proceeds benefited Splinter Hill Bog
    Preserve managed by TNC of Alabama.

    So please do your part and donate an item in the upcoming auction.
    You will not only help maintain the Sarracenia oreophila site,
    but also allow us to save more carnivorous plants this year.

    The auction will run from Saturday, April 24, 2010 until
    Saturday, May 8, 2010.

    Auction forum and rules are located at
    TerraForums,
    sponsored by FlyTrapShop.

    Sarracenia oreophila is listed on the US Endangered Species Act and
    CITES Appendix I.

    preserving natural Sarracenia habitats.

    Ozzy, thank you for posting that. I have been a slacker!

    I hope that you all will support our Auction this year despite the lack of promotion. That has been my fault. I haven't been able to get here.

    This auction is our only fundraiser and it helps us to function.

    And as always, we are looking for volunteers willing to do a little work such as education, newsletter, article writing, etc.

    Thank you so much for your support over these years. These forums never change. And that is a GOOD thing. The community here is just the best group of people.

    YAY for Dandy and TerraForums!

    Excellent! I'm glad to hear that you guys were able to find a good cause.

    I'll be heading home in 2 weeks for the weekend -- we'll see what a year without tending has done to the plants. Something tells me there should be some divisions available.

    Look like soon we'll need the traditional "what I'm thinking about donating / what I'd like to see donated" thread. So much fun.

    Edit -- looks like I've been beaten to it!

    The board says the auction is from 4/24 through 5/8 9pm EST. Is that correct or should it be EDT?
