    The State Botanical Garden of Georgia is on the chopping block. Via the Plant Conservation Alliance mailing-list:

    Other cuts of note to horticulture / plants in the "summary of reductions" document (there are a few others, too):

    Pretty much impossible to respond to a report like this without making political comments.

    Yes, I know. But people need to be aware. I suppose I could close the thread and leave it as information-only, but maybe the discussion will be civil.

    A timely wakeup call to all who value such institutions as the UBC Botanical Garden and this site.

    Glad I dropped by and saw this. I have linked over the Botanical Society of Georgia. Don't know if anything can be done to prevent this but if anyone there is able or has some ideas in mind then maybe they can accomplish a miracle??
