Was just looking at the petition site and find it's taking a jump, over 700 this week, and an amazing number of them refer to the carnivorous plants. Please pass our thanks along and thank you for getting the word out.
We're building forces, have found that there are now 6 dump sites trying to locate in NC. It will only take four of them to make us the 4th greatest importer of trash in the nation, just got that from the NC Div of Solid Waste today. The fact that trash has become a statewide problem will help us, I think. We're working on a motorcade to the capital from all the sites to bring public attention to the problem.
We're also working on a brochure and would like to have a listing of organizations supporting us in the brochure. Could you see about getting a letter of support from the International Society?
I heard someone suggesting they do something else with the land instead of making it a dump, maybe make it a state park. I don't know where that will go, but the people who live next to the site have told me it used to be full of fly traps and pitcher plants. Of course, IP has seen that it's been well drained and sprayed; but left alone to detox, they might come back with a little help. Just a thought ~
