We have some good news to share!  The North American Sarracenia Conservancy  (NASC) has raised $1,250 for a burn at our Old Dock preserve!  NASC has partnered with us on previous projects at some of our other preserves and we are happy to say that they are helping us out again.  The burn at Old Dock will be a growing season burn in 2014.  We have increased the frequency of our burning at Old Dock in the past 10 years to every 2 to 3 years and the results are magnificent.  Below are some pictures I took this week at Old Dock; it was amazing!
