    WHOAH, slow down. This site needs to be surveyed to see if any plants even exist on it. I'll have to contact the realty co. and see if I can look at the property. If there are any Sarracenia there it would only be a small bog. I will note that from location there is a good chance of finding S. alatas in the area.
    But FINDING them is the hard part.

    Scott will do. I had only had phone conversations with Machael, so I felt it most appropriate to get introductions out of the way.

    I think Michael has a good solution in purchasing land. It works for now, but will eventually grind to a halt. Extrapolate with me here, You own 15 acres of prime Sarracenia habitat, (I see yall drooling out there) Of course you refuse to sel this land. The land around you is purchased. You now have 20 mini marts surrounding you're property. You're eco system has changed dramaticly, where is youre' water source now? or are you more prone to flooding because everything around you is built on higher ground. What in the world is leaching into you're soil from surrounding neighbors. The problem is, it's easy to buy a bog. It's much harder to purchase an ecosystem. I've been told I'm wrong before, Just thinking out loud.

    Kirk, You touch one plant without a permission slip, and your name is mud here. Without signed permission, you better not take one single plant. Only exception is one being dug up by bulldozers. Otherwise, no touch!!!!! Bigtime trouble for you!

    As you mentioned in a later post, this really doesn't work. Once landowners start splitting up land, they usually like the money they found and keep splitting it up. Even if you don't get minimarts, you may get homes that use herbicides on their lawns or have poor septic systems. We've really got to try and keep these ecosystems intact. Buying one acre only contributes to the problem... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_h_32.gif[/img]

    There was an article a few years back (ICPS??) about some people who found a beautiful little bog filled w/ Sarracenia on a farm somewhere. They approached the owner about purchasing the bog, who acted very receptive, and told them to come back the next day so they could continue discussions. When they returned, the entire bog was under several inches of fertilizer. The owner said the last thing he wanted was some type of fancy plant on his land attracting conservation types and/or the government....

    Sad but true... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_h_32.gif[/img] Did you read Barry Rice's recent trip report to Mississippi & Louisiana? Barry's Trip and the part about the realtor lady? Lots of people really do not care at all about conservation [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_h_32.gif[/img] That's all the more reason why those of us who do need to act quickly!!
    All the best,
