Taylor’s checkerspot butterfly habitat restoration at Cardwell Hill: Final Report 2019

Andy Neill | 2019

The Institute for Applied Ecology worked with private landowners and USFWS Partners for Fish and Wildlife Program to enhance the three Taylor’s checkerspot butterfly occupied meadows at Cardwell Hill during 2018 and 2019. Work was funded by a grant with Oregon Watershed Enhancement Board funds administered through the Oregon State Weed Board. This grant supported herbicide treatments to control priority weeds and encroaching shrubs and the purchase and planting of plant materials to enhance and improve butterfly habitat throughout the Cardwell Hill project site.
