Kincaid’s lupine is a threatened species and is the main host plant for the endangered Fender’s blue butterfly (Icaricia icarioides fenderi). Populations of both species declined due to habitat loss and competition from invasive plant species. IAE is restoring butterfly habitat at multiple sites in the Willamette Valley, with help from landowners and agencies, and funding from Oregon Watershed Enhancement Board. We are teaming up with Greenbelt Land Trust at Bald Hill Farm. Come do your bit to help these rare species as we plant 2000 lupine plugs.
