I took this photo yesterday while beginning some of the clean up of the park. The plant’s beauty reminds me just how special a place the Rehder Garden is.
I want to take time to first thank everyone for their concern and support and for the offers for donations to help us recover from the poaching. As soon as I can, I will be putting up a page for donations and other information about the garden. I hope to have a live cam placed in the coming weeks so you can see the work ongoing. Â We are still working out the cooperative arrangement between the NC Coastal Land Trust, the City of Wilmington, and Cape Fear Community College. At present if you want to make a donation of seeds or live plants or other supplies you can send them directly to:
Cape Fear Community College
C/O Daniel Sheret
411 North Front Street
Please mark “Perishable”
If you would like to contribute funds for the restoration and reward for information on the poaching please go toÂ http://www.coastallandtrust.org/Flytrapfund
We can and will recover from this thanks to all that share the love and passion for such special plants. Â Please check back each day for more news and photos from the Bog.
