    attention fellow new yorkers and interested participants.

    I've been looking into starting a ny carnivorous plant society. Our society will work hand and hand with other cps societies like the new england carnivorous plant society, North American Sarracenia Conservancy and the infamous international carnivorous plant society to help protect and conserve carnivorous plants around the world not just locally. We will also help spread the knowledge of these spectacular plants to the general public in not only how to care for carnivorous plants but on how vital the protection of their habitat is, not only to carnivorous plants themselves but the thousands of other rare and unique creature that call a bog home.

    If you are interested in any way shape or form please feel free to send me a pm or post directly onto this post.

    Thanks alot for taking the time to read about my future endevours but also taking the time to possibly consider to help spread the word of protection and care of these uniquely fragile plants.

    Kudos for your incentive - there are many within this region who would support the creation of a CP society / club. The last effort we had only produced one meeting (which was interesting btw!).
    All the best,

    i remeber reading this article during my research. I feel the one large problem will be is that finding a place that is a somewhat centralized area in new york where everyone can meet. I know that most of the cp growers in ny are closer to nj and nyc but us upstaters are pretty much scattered all over the place. Right now its more of an idea on paper which is unfortunate because i feel its something that is definately need for up here in NYS cause the any money that is fundraised by us will go towards the wetlands and bog protection which also helps to benefit hunters and fisherman. Im just curious to see how many nyers and possibly PAers and NJers that would be willing to ever participate. and who knows since NY is closer to Canada then we might get a Canadain growers as well.

    I'd be interested, let me know whatever I can do to help! I may not be in New York permanently, but I'm here for at least another year, if not longer. No telling, but with the deployment coming up, I'm guaranteed to stay for the year.

    I would be interested in participating. Maybe we could meet up in one of the botanical gardens in NYC? I can ask around at BBG about it.

    Same thing here, that's about a 5 hour drive one way, sometimes more, my friend from Long Island drove about 8 hours to come up and visit me. Though I haven't been to NYC before, so I wouldn't mind going a couple of times.
    Maybe we could mix it up some and change the locations so that everyone has a chance to go to the closer ones to them as well, I know I can't make a 10 hour round trip drive every month, especially considering that gas is $4 a gallon here (ok, and I drive a V8 that gets 14 MPG...that doesn't help). Could also carpool some, I have a 7 seater truck and wouldn't mind.
    Or, depending on how many people we have in CNY and western NY, have 2 separate groups that do an annual meeting - that is, if there is enough to cover 2 full groups - NYC/NJ could be combined and could combine western NY/CNY with Ontario Canada.
    Just a thought.
