    Hye everyone, as some people here know I am going bogging this summer in July throughout the SE United States, I am mainly going for the experience, but if there are any constructions sites, where plants are in danger of getting destroyed I can rescue mos tof them and distribute them here. If any of you are aware of sights that are out of reach for anyone I would g;adly save them and distribute them here for s+h 3.85 I am not sure if this is allowed or not, so if a mod finds this innapropriate please notify me and close the thread, Even if I dont get any responses, who knows I still might run acrooss a construction sight and find some plants to distribute, keep your eye out, the plants' habitats that I am visiting are:
    S. flava
    S. leucophylla
    S. alata
    S. purpurea
    S. minor
    S. psittacina
    keep your eyes out!

    sounds like a wonderful poaching expedition please tell me that this is not the case! Also please remember that just because you see them next to the road or where ever else and not in a protected bog area that it DOES NOT mean that they are free for grabs to "save"

    I hope after this post that the members here are weary of giving any locations. It sounds like you are already offeriing the plants listed away for the postage.

    Leave them for a responsible, more expierenced person in this field. I don't think a bunch of construction people or landowners would believe a 13 year old kid either.

    Just bring a camera.

    whatever, I guess if I see a stand of sarracenia about to be blown over by bulldozers I'll jsut leave them, just thought that I would try to see if there were any plants in need but fine after hearing all the alata stands that were in danger, thought there might be something in need of saving, If you guys really want me to leave plants that might be in need of help alone, sure I'll just look.

    Kirk, If you can't understand the concerns of the people trying to give you advice here, you don't belong in the field, period. Our concerns are valid, and concern the well being of the plant. You are 13. I am afraid I would not trust the judgement of a 13 year old kid in regards to what constitutes "saving" a plant in the field. If that hurts your feelings, then I know for sure you don't belong there. You don't have to like the advice given, but you had better take the time to understand it. A bad reputation in the CP field, NEVER goes away! And you don't want one!

    Kirk, Bugweed is right.

    While your dedication is admirable, you have to remember to temper you enthusiasm with wisdom. It's not a simple matter of, "Let's go save 'em!" You have to deal with people, many of whom will NOT listen to you because of your age. I know it's not fair, but that's life....And you WILL age (most of us are now denying how old we are, lol). You need some adults on your side to lend credence to your mission. Rescues should be done by an orginazation. It makes it look more credible.

    Unfortunately, the NASC has to do more that rescue/propagate plants. We have to sway public oppinion. That means we have to keep up official appearances.

    I'm not upset that you guys don't trust me, it's more that you are accusing me of trying to poach
