Sundews in burns bog?

I was wondering if anyone has found sundews (probably drosera rotundifolia) in burns bog? I've been searching for a while after seeing a fun facts/ info board on one of the bog trails. Was curious to see if anyone has found any, or maybe any other sites for the dews in the bc's lower mainland?

I went with the family about five years ago, walking on the trail, and didn't see any Drosera there. I think we'd have to get into the actual bog like in the center.

For the 20th anniversary of protecting Burns bog they were doing a couple free tours into the ecoreserve. One was on the first and there's one tomorrow June 15th. Might be hard to get a spot so late. They do other tours: https://burnsbog.org/public-private-tours/ I bet you'd see some sundews on those.
I did one of Burns Bog's public tours about 6-7 years ago. We didn't see any CPs, but I wasn't aware at the time that there were any there so didn't think to ask where they might be. My current, very limited understanding (meaning I could totally be wrong) is that they are not any near the trails in the public sections of the bog. There is a vast private reserve, however, that is not open to the public. To verify if it's possible to see them near a trail, I imagine one could email or call the society and ask :)

Thanks, I'll do that :)
