Tom and Eric Nelson operate Blue Heron Lady Slipper Company in Castle Rock, MN.  They legally rescue plants from construction sites and relocate them. 

Ferns play an important part of many ecosystems.  They help recolonize land after overbrowsing or other damage and pave the way for more species to follow.  Ferns provide food and shelter for many small creatures, can even filter out some environmental toxins, and provide an indicator of the health of the ecosystem.
