Really want to see native plants

ANTSPlantation

Carnivore
One of my wishes of my carnivorous plant growing journey, is to see native carnivorous plants growing in their natural habitat. I have been looking for them for years and didn't find a trace of them. For some times, I find sphagnum moss but no native carnivorous plants, so it would be great if anyone could tell me where can I possibly find native carnivorous plants in Alberta, or even better, exact location would be better, so I can finally see these amazing plants growing in their natural habitat.

Thanks

For obvious reasons we don’t post or share exact locations with members.

Out of all of Canada, Alberta is one of the more difficult places to see carnivorous plants in the wild, mostly because the majority of the population is away from proper habitat. There are a decent amount of sites going further north and as Lloyd said, there are loads of Pings in the mountains. I can dig up some site info and send you in the general direction.

I can post a few photos of in situ sites, but, as H2O states, it's a fickle thing to post about. Often these places are sensitive to human traffic, and limiting the access is best for the continuation of the site, and species present
thanks, because I live near the rockies and near BC so do I just look around or something?
