The Carnivorous Plant FAQ Field Trip Report -

Appalachian Excursion in 2007!

Return to the Trip Overview

A reintroduction site:
This little clearing in the woods was much smaller than the other balds, but you can see in the vegetation that there are bare, slick, brown sheets of exposed rock. And growing with the competing vegetation are Sarracenia jonesii pitchers. You can see them in the foreground-center of this image, for example.

If I recall correctly, Jim had been helping in the management of this site. The management staff had been reintroducing Sarracenia jonesii to this site to help build up the population of plants. Do not attempt this yourself, this kind of work must be done with all kinds of official permits!
