Wisconsin Karner Blue Butterfly and Kirtland’s Warbler HCP Land Acquisition – Central Sands* (Adams County, WI) $497,600 (partial funding).

This grant will be used to acquire a permanent conservation easement on 3,326 acres within a 9,048- acre easement area from Plum Creek Timberlands. Acquisition of this conservation easement will assist in the recovery of the Karner blue butterfly in Wisconsin by permanently protecting and managing habitat necessary to a Karner blur butterfly metapopulation within the Glacial Lake Wisconsin Recovery Unit. The easement area also supports a viable breeding population of Kirtland’s warbler and this area’s permanent protection and management is expected to maintain and expand the Kirtland’s warbler population in the future. The easement will also benefit associated barrens species.
