Comments

Dakota Skipper Reintroduction
The Dakota skipper was historically found in western Minnesota from Pipestone, Murray, and Cottonwood Counties in the south to Roseau County in the north. In the last few decades it has become extirpated from three-fourths of its documented locations nationally, including all of the locations in southwestern Minnesota. In 2017, Dakota skippers were reintroduced into adjacent Hole-in-the-Mountain Prairie Preserve, owned by The Nature Conservancy. It is hoped that the species will eventually colonize Hole-in-Mountain WMA.
