Help is coming for endangered butterfly at Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore

The Karner Blue Butterfly has a wingspan of about an inch, feed only on the leaves of the wild lupine plant and are an endangered species.
So officials at the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore and the Indiana Dunes State Park are doing what they can to help the butterfly.
They are in the process of restoring a black oak savanna they share this summer to save the homes of the butterfly and other native species.
Invasive species have moved into the savanna and pushed out native plants.
