Karner Blue Butterfly (Lycaeides melissa samuelis).

The Service's New York Field Office completed formal ESA section 7 consultation with the Federal Aviation Administration regarding the Saratoga County Airport Master Plan Update. The Saratoga County Airport is the site of the largest population of the endangered Karner blue butterfly in New York. The 5-year Master Plan Update includes a variety of projects associated with airport operations and maintenance. Part of the plan involves clearing about 70 acres (28 ha) for obstruction removal, and these cleared areas will be reseeded with native grasses and flowers to create additional habitat for the butterflies.
