NASC in the New York Times

NASC was briefly mentioned in an excellent article, "Lured in, along with the Insects," by Ken Druse published in the New York Times on 13 October 2011. We were noted the august company of the Center for Plant Conservation at the Missouri Botanical Garden, the Atlanta Botanical Garden, and the Carnivorous Plant Society in a discussion on habitat loss for natural populations of Sarracenia and efforts to conserve these natural populations through land acquisition and management, suppression of poaching, and maintenance of unique genotype stocks in cultivated plants. We appreciate the great press!
