Dakota skippers reintroduced to a Minnesota prairie

In late June and early July 2017, about 200 adult Dakota skippers were released on The Nature Conservancy’s (TNC) Hole-in-the-Mountain Preserve in an attempt to reestablish a population on this site.

The Nature Conservancy recently released a video and a blog post describing the release and the science supporting the reintroduction.
