  • The landowner agreement for the rescue site in Florida has been signed by NASC officers and received by the landowner. We are waiting on their approval to then apply for the collection permit from the state. We will then plan on gathering volunteers to catalog the plants first, then rescue them at a later date.
  • We are moving forward with the purchase of land at Boiling Spring Lakes, NC to donate and contribute to the Boiling Spring Lakes Preserve (Plant Conservation Program, North Carolina Department of Agriculture - Plant Protection Section).
