The Carnivorous Plant FAQ Field Trip Report -

Being Stupid in Ontario, 2003

The Trip:
With little warning, late in September 2003 I discovered I was to take a business trip to Ottawa, Canada. This would put me within a day's drive of some very interesting carnivorous plant sites, so of course I knew I had to add a few days onto my trip, to give me time to visit them. This was a little stupid, for reasons I will get into.

Oddly, I sort of feel that my hands are a little tied right now since the guys that told me about these sites are publishing some of their observations soon. So to avoid stealing their thunder, I am not going to do as much interpretation as I would like as I describe these sites. But I hope you enjoy the photos anyway.

The main attractions at these sites were the populations of Sarracenia purpurea. If you love this species, the following web pages will be like a direct injection of heroin into your veins.

P.S. Sorry it took so long for me to get these photos on line! I've been crazy busy the last several months.

Start the photo-essay!
