Well, I'm at Science class now, and our teacher just assigned us to make a travel brochure for a national park. What national parks have any CPs in them? :roll: :? :?:

At the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore there are Sarracenia purpurea, Drosera rotundifolia, Utricularia cornuta, Utricularia gibba. and Utricularia macrorhiza... I don't know if it qualifies as a 'National Park' though.....

You can certainly do Lake Waccamaw National Park, and it has the only place with the Venus Flytrap, with sarracenias, droseras, pinguiculas, utricularias. So this sounds like a good idea to me!

Good luck with the project, hope the teacher is nice with you and gives you an A+! :lol:

Aww, crap! I can't do Waccamaw because it's a State park :(. I'll let you know what I end up picking :)

Oh yea, and I can do the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore because it is on the National Parks website :).

How about The Great Smoky Mountains National Park, believe it or not, there are sarracenias just below the mountains, in fact sarracenia oreophilla sand mountain(i think is this one) is the only sarra that lives far inland in the mountains, just right below the mountains, in north carolina but more to the south in the mountains going south to georgia.

Lassen Volcanic National Park in northern California has Drosera rotundifolia along one of their hiking trails. The trail leads to one of the lakes and passes through a meadow with the sundews. I have hiked Lassen a couple of times. It's one of my favorite national parks.

Really? Which one? I love that park and don't live too far from it. I've only visited once, but I really want to go back and spend some time there. It's also one of my favorite NPs.
