  • Ben asks the group for informational/promotional banners, pamphlets and the like about conversation and the NASC cause to spread the word in Nebraska. He would really like to get the Omaha Zoo on board with a carnivorous plant exhibit.
  • Sheila talks about her local zoo and about the dead or dying carnivorous plants there. She suggest that perhaps NASC sponsors a bog at the zoo with native Mississippi plants. The group's main concern is proper care.
  • Heather talks about the North Carolina Zoo and how they keep the carnivorous plants in the same exhibit at the alligators.
  • Heather also forgot to write her article.
