    Well, im current in a selective high school student program at the American Museum of Natural History. This summer i was starting out my program with an introduction to all major aspects of science, which included a trip to Black Rock Forest. I thought it would be cool, it was planned that we were going to scale a mountain and check out the wildlife and insects, but i had no idea there would be CP's there!
    There is a pond called Peat Pond (i think it's something like that, don't really remember) I'm not really good at when it comes to CP classification, but i saw D. Intermedia, D, Filliformis, and D. Rotundifolia. I nearly passed out on a tour of the pond, after seeing this i asked the guide if there are any other CP's in this forest, and he said during lunch time he would take me to Tamarak Pond (again not sure if its called that) There there were bladderworts!! everywhere!! I controlled myself with the drosera but i couldn't help myself. I forgot what species he told me this was but it has really small bladders. Could someone make a guess? there were also Pings. I couldn't get to see the nepenthes, i dont know if he was mistaken or not about them being there, i belive him about the sarracenia though. Once before the Arthur Reservoir was built, there use to be tons of CP's growing everywhere, the reservoir is huge and peat moss and sphagnum moss grows everywhere. There are remote points of elevation within the reservoir that he said where home to sarracenia and nepenthes, i'll belive it when i see it. I'm already gonna set up another day to go and check out the rest of the Forest. Oh by the way, the mountain was beautiful you get a view of everything around you, but the CP's got my full attencion.. lol [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img]
    I don't know if the area is open to the public though, since its privately owned by harvard. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/confused.gif[/img]
    They say if you play a Microsoft CD backwards, you hear satanic messages. Thats nothing, cause if you play it forwards, it installs Windows.

    It's about 3 hours away from NYC. We were given permission to bring the bus in to the center of the forest, but there are no cars allowed past the beggining. we spent just 1 hour getting to the center well worth the wait, all the CP's are in the center of the forest.
