    Florida here. Would be fun to do a field trip and see CPs in the wild here.

    Every six years whether we need it or not :-). I'd love to help rebirth a new SE US CP Society (why should the West Coast and the North East get all of the fun?). As one who tried (and failed) to keep a National Capital (DC, VA, MD) group going, it's a challenge for sure. Big enough to have enough members to sustain it, and meetings can be awfully far away. Small enough so that people can actually get together more than once a year (or less frequently), and it's hard to build a critical mass of membership.

    I'm wondering if a large SE group with smaller regional chapters might be the solution? Large enough to have a decent infrastructure, but more local chapters to give people a real opportunity to meet in person, etc.

    Agree that Atlanta Botanical Garden has a great CP collection and might be a good home base. Ditto Chattahoochie Nature Reserve. Crosby Arboretum in SE Mississippi has done a great job preserving S. alata stands, and UNCC in Charlotte is known for its CP as well. There's also Meadowview in Virginia ...

    If one was to envision a SE CP Society stretching from Dallas to DC, how would you divide it up?
    Growing CP since 1975. Succeeding (more or less) since 1990.

    I would love to join a SE CP Society! I'm here in Raleigh, NC. I'm actually trying to plan a trip in a few weeks to go down to visit a bunch of CP sites. I'm going to pm everyone that has posted in this thread to see if anyone wants to join in on the adventure.
