January 17, 2014 - Dear members and supporters, we wanted to let you know that United Plant Savers and our colleagues involved with American Ginseng Conservation continue to pursue the History Channel regarding the content of this series. Last night's episode was saturated with error and misguidance especially in regards to the misidentification of plants, sale of dry vs fresh roots, the cost of roots per pound, and the inappropriate harvesting of underage plants. In addition, we are all still very concerned about the illegal harvest on both private and public lands that is being portrayed.
If you share our concern, please feel free to contact the network directly: The parent company of the History Channel is AE Network. Feedback on the program can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. Or to A&E Television Networks, 235 East 45th Street, New York, New York 10017; or phone or fax the network at: 212-210-1400 (phone) or 212-210-9016 (fax). You can also contact them through the History Channel Facebook page. Please, as always, be respectful and professional in your communications.
