Federally Threatened Prairie Fringed Orchid

This week, staff from multiple Minnesota stations completed surveys for the federally threatened western prairie fringed orchid on Glacial Ridge National Wildlife Refuge. Determining the whereabouts of this rare plant influences habitat management decisions and is part of our responsibility under the Endangered Species Act. Surveyors found numerous plants in several areas of the refuge!
