Platanthera clavellata in Boreas

Hi All,

I was out on Boreas Ponds yesterday. There are several "floating" sphagnous mats with bog species growing on them throughout the three ponds. I found P. clavellata growing on them, but I was there working and was not able to do any kind of real survey assessment of the population(s) there.

I wanted to let you all know in case someone can and is willing to go back there and get more detailed data about the population(s).

There's also a ton of Sarracenia purpurea and Drosera. It's a cool place to check out. Although, at the moment one would have to haul in a kayak from the parking area, which is not close to the ponds.

Dan Spada said he found numerous flowering P. clavellata floating on logs in boggy areas in Black Pond, Paul Smiths last week. FYI.

hey - I tried to do a journal post too but couldn't. must be only something you can do as an admin... can you see if there is a way to change that? that way more people might post to help us better keep in touch...???

If you click "more journal posts" at the bottom of the journal post on the main project page it should take to the journal page where there is a "new post" button.
