    Hello all -

    As part of the NASC's mission, we are to "...serve as a living record of the taxonomic, morphological and genetic diversity of the genus Sarracenia for purposes of conservation and cultivation." To help us complete this mission, the Grower Committee is asking for your help!

    We are currently accepting donations of location-specific plant material (seeds and/or plants) for the purposes of building and augmenting the NASC Sarracenia collection. The plant material must be legally obtained, and correctly identified as to species and location. Location information, preferably GPS coordinates, must be provided to the NASC Head Grower (me) via E-MAIL (headgrower@nasarracenia.org) ONLY!

    Please do not reply in this thread with any location information, as we do not want this information to be public knowledge. Please DO reply to this thread with any questions you have.

    With the help of you, the CP community, we hope to preserve these wonderful plants for generations to come! Please consider donating plant material to this worthy cause.

    All donors will remain anonymous if desired.

    Thank you in advance for your help, and I look forward to hearing from you!

    Mike

    How would I go about legally collecting plants for you? Or could you point me to a source on who to contact in my area (SE Michigan) to look into the legalities?

    If you can tell me a little about the legality of the plants in question, it would make it easier for me to reply to your question. Where did the plants originate from, and how did you obtain them?

    Thanks!

    There is a set procedure in place for legally collecting plants for the NASC. This first and foremost involves an NASC member obtaining the written permission to collect from the landowner.

    I would suggest that you contact Mark Todd, the NASC Head of Conservation, at conservation@nasarracenia.org to discuss what needs to be dome to collect for the NASC. You might also want to contact Glenn Petersen (Glenn on TerraForums), who is the Regional Head Grower for Michigan, about how you might be able to assist with the growing aspect of our work.

    Above all, I hope that all those interested in the efforts of the NASC will become involved! Even if that's only by financially supporting the NASC as a member, your help is appreciated. Join us today!

    Good Growing,

    Mike

    PMed you the other day. Let me know how to proceed.
    All proofs inevitably lead to propositions that have no proof. All things are known because we want to believe in them.

    My Growlist updated with available trades and pictures - PM if interested
