    Venus Fly Traps in the NJ Pine Barrens

    We saw Venus fly trap in its native environment in Green Swamp, NC a few years back. The gent who planted non-native species in the PB was actually from Lower Bank although I imagine there have been many throughout the years.. I'm interested in seeing the changes in flora of NJ occur naturally...

    One of the post fire reports indicate that the core of chestnut when exposed to fire is rotted....perhaps that was early, undetected blight?

    Fire in the Pines

    How about those careless school children picking wildflowers ? Wouldn't find that as a cause in today's world. However, we do still have our fair share of tramps, so that's plausible. :)

    Oil drilling in Plumstead/Jackson?

    I know of Horse Heaven in our area. One of the older folks in town who owned horses throughout her life told me where residents would bury their horses 1800s - 1950s. It's all grown over with pine and catbriar now. One would never know it exists.

She possessed a wealth of knowledge that connected the Hammonton community in particular, to Batsto's historic past. Humbly and without limelight she provided...
