To ensure that this special group of plants remains in NS there are a few simple actions we can all take to help out. ACPF are threatened by habitat modification from activities such as shoreline development (cottage building, docks, walls, etc) road building, infilling, and nutrient run-off.

Because these species occur in low nutrient environments where competition from other species is low, they can become displaced if water nutrient levels increase and allow more common and competitive species to move in.

Many people already know or have learned about these species and are taking actions to help them. If you live or work near this special group of plants, become a steward and help these species.  It's as easy as keeping your shore lines and wetlands wild!
