11 am - 5 pm on Saturday, May 19, 2018 at Aquascapes Unlimited

5542 Townshipline Road, Pipersville, PA 18947

Aquascapes Unlimited is a major wholesale nursery of aquatic plants and carnivorous plants, and we were delighted that they hosted us for our fourth meeting. Thank you to them as well for providing a delicious barbecue lunch. ​We heard from Aquascapes Unlimited owner, Randy Heffner, who discussed Sarracenia hybridization and the work that goes into the growing of all the plants here. We also enjoyed a guided tour of the grounds, which truly go on forever! We were honored to hear a talk from Aaron Ellison, a senior research fellow at Harvard Forest and adjunct research professor at the University of Massachusetts, who recently published a book titled Carnivorous Plants: Physiology, Ecology, and Evolution, which highlights much of the latest scientific research on carnivorous plants. Thank you to everyone who attended!
