I decided to post this in the general forum instead of the conservation forum because it is very urgent and we have no time to waste.
Most of you know that I have been working with a group to stop a landfill that is propose to be built in the Green Swamp NC. The Green Swamp is home to the most cp species and has more cp's than any other place on earth, including the Venus Flytrap. The landfill is being built in the middle of the swamp, just 5 miles upstream from The Nature Conservancy, the only protected site in the swamp.
If you would like to read more about this then please read this.
I just received a news report that says the decision to grant permission for the landfill is now in the hands of the Governor, of NC, Mike Easley.
Please take a few minutes of your time to write a letter to Mr. Easley and tell him how you fell about this. Tell him how important it is to save what cp sites we have left. This is our last chance to save the best cp site in the world. If the wrong decision is made there will be no turning back.Originally Posted by [b
