Due to the generosity of our many donors our Central Virginia Preserve note is down to less than $8000, from $19,000 in May 2010! We've completed phase 1 of our restoration program with a partial hardwood removal and planting of native Caroline County Sarracenia purpurea. Thanks to our contractors, volunteers, and interns for getting this work done. Our interns Graham Hunt and Richard Curzon have done a fantastic job helping and covering progress on both our Face book page and Terra Forums. We have a link on our web page at www.pitcherplant.org about the Fund Drive and Graham's extensive photo gallery.
We would like to pay off the $8000 note on the 3 acres within the next few months as we enter a new grant competition to purchase additional land. Please let folks know that donations are welcome. We encourage you to make an appointment to come see the project or to arrange an ecovacation or volunteer time.
Look forward to hearing from you.
Phil Sheridan, Ph.D. Director Meadowview Biological Research Station
