In the past we have donated to: North American Sarracenia Conservancy Meadowview Biological Research Station TNC of Alabama
On top of these nominees we also have: (1) Atlanta Botanical Garden, has been involved with Sarracenia conservation since 1989 (especially S. purpurea var. montana), including display gardens (http://atlantabg.org/plan-your-visit/locations/conservation-gardens) as well as propagation, safeguarding genetic diversity, and reintroduction efforts.
(3) State Botanical Garden of Georgia -- founding organization of the Georgia Plant Conservation Alliance, which among other things targets conservation of mountain bogs, Sarracenia within Georgia, and other rare plants that occur alongside CPs in their habitats botgarden.uga.edu/conserve.php#Intro The three above were nominated by theplantman
If you have any other organization you believe our t-shirt sale profits should go to, please nominate them below!
Creator of the forums! Yeah, I know I was away for a while, but I am back!!!
I would also like to nominate The Georgia Department of Natural Resources, Wildlife Resources Division, Nongame Conservation Section. I know that sounds overly bureaucratic, but this is the specific branch of GADNR that manages over 130 threatened and endangered species in Georgia, including all species of Sarracenia. They are in charge of the creation and management of state Natural Areas, which include Doerun Pitcherplant Bog and many, many other CP habitats. They work with landowners to secure conservation easements for the rare plants that are not protected on government or nonprofit property. They do burns, keep herbicide crews from DOT or power companies from blasting away Sarracenia accidentally, and also outreach to the public on how important conservation is. Members from GADNR also participated in the successful rescue of flavas from the well-known Statesboro Bog site in Bulloch Co., GA. This agency makes up a critical piece of conservation work for CPs in Georgia.
Additionally, this section only receives funding from license plate sales, and a donation toward their work would likely be quite appreciated. They don't have as large of a state budget as many other agencies.
Thanks, Jonathan, for bringing up the other great organizations that could use our support!! I hope we sell a boatload of shirts!!
stu: Hi Mike: I’m pleased to report that the S. rubra wherryi Chatom Giant you sent has arrived in great shape as did the bonus plant from NC. Both are now back under southern skies and are feeling warm, humid, and at home again. Thanks!

sanguinearocks101: What are good plants to make hybrids with S. luecophylla with? Im looking for dark colors.

adaetz100: Sarracenia purpurea tends to add a lot of red/purple to its offspring, but there are some lovely dark red flava x leucophylla crosses too. Look up 'Royal Ruby' if you're not familiar with it already--it's a natural flava x leuco hybrid
