What The Nature Conservancy is Doing/has Done
Conservancy staff and volunteers have manually removed invasive species, and prescribed burns have been used to open up the sire and create ideal conditions for herbaceous sand savanna plants and the lupine - an essential necessity for the rare Persius duskywing butterfly.
