Protect the Bear Claw Poppy


Protecting a poppy in the White Dome Nature Preserve is also going to help protect an endangered cactus. Yay!

The White Dome Nature Preserve, as it is now called, is home to the largest gypsum formation; it is located off River Road north of the Southern Parkway (Utah).  In addition to the Bear Claw Poppy, it is habitat for the Siler Pincushion Cactus, which is also threatened, says York, as well as providing protective habitat for several at-risk animal species, including the zebra-tailed lizard and the loggerhead shrike.

It’s a twofer. And if you add in the lizard and the shrike (a lizard-eating bird!), it’s a fourfer.
