Fender’s Blue Butterfly Habitat Restoration at Henry Hagg Lake

Neill, Andy and Andrew Esterson | 2019

In 2019, the Institute for Applied Ecology (IAE) partnered with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service) to help restore habitat at Henry Hagg Lake (Hagg Lake) to aid in the recovery of the endangered Fender’s blue butterfly (Icaricia icarioides fenderi) and its host plant, the threatened Kincaid’s lupine (Lupinus oreganus). Through this partnership, IAE provides recommendations for habitat management, executes on-the-ground management actions, manages subcontractors, produces and procures native plant materials, and develops and purchases native seed mixes.
