The Group B trips have been shaping up and are pretty much good to go!
I don't have the complete information, but it's basically this:
The NECPS will start with a bus-trip to Cape Cod to see D. Filiformis & S. Purpurea in fantastic coastal locations!
On the following days, there’ll be:
Trips to a spectacular Mountain Roadside Bog filled with S. Purpurea and a also floating sphagnum mat bog with beautifully colored S. Purpurea and then onto Mike and Rich's where there will be a BBQ and Pot-Luck luncheon!
Then the next day, a visit to the greenhouses of UCONN maintained by Dr. Matt Opel to see their extensive Carnivorous Plant collection, then a visit to a local Connecticut bog with S. Purpurea and then a visit to Logee’s old-timey Greenhouse.
The Field Trip A to North Carolina is now closed.... but if you do want to attend, contact me and I will provide the hotel information for you to make your own arrangements!
The Group B trips are ready!
The cost will be $40 per day for just transportation. Meals and accommodations will be the responsibility of the participants.
Feel free to attend just one day, two days or all three! It’s completely your choice! We leave from the Conference Center Parking Lot every morning at 9am.
On the day after the Conference ends, on Tuesday August 14th, the NECPS will provide a bus-trip to Cape Cod, Massachusetts for visits to a couple of old, abandoned Commercial Cranberry Bogs in Brewster and Harwich to see native Drosera Filiformis & Drosera Intermedia in fantastic coastal locations! We’ll be stopping for lunch in between and will also visit some scenic locations like the Cape Cod canal overlook for a bit of New England sightseeing.
On Wednesday, August 15th, it’ll be time to board the bus again for a trip up to northern Massachusetts to a spectacular Mountain Roadside Bog filled with Sphagnum and Sarracenia Purpurea and onto another location with a floating Sphagnum mat bog containing beautifully colored Sarracenia Purpurea. We will continue onto the Black Jungle store where there will be a BBQ and Pot-Luck luncheon at their greenhouses!
