The 2008 NASC fundraiser auction was a success; thanks to all who participated! Unfortunately, a server crashed 8 minutes before the scheduled closing of the auction, bringing an end to last-minute bidding. This event was unrelated to traffic load and was outside of the control of the NASC or the web manager. The server has now been restored. The NASC regrets the inconvenience this must have caused many bidders.
Once more, a big Thank You to all who donated items or participated in the auction! A total of $3409 was raised for conservation. Of this amount, $1500 will go toward the Splinter Hill Bog expansion purchase fund. Your generosity will go a long way to helping us preserve North American pitcher plants and raise awareness of their unique value and environmental status.
