Hare-footed locoweed conservation management plan

Description

The hare-footed locoweed is a tufted, low-growing perennial herbaceous plant growing from a stout taproot crowned by leaves with silvery hairs. It has attractive pink, pea-like flowers. It has been a designated Species of Special Concern in Alberta because it has a small distribution and there is a projected decline in quality of habitat. This plan provides background information on the hare-footed locoweed and outlines a set of objectives and management actions to help meet the goal of maintaining current distribution and subpopulations of the species in Alberta. Conservation management plans are developed for Species of Special Concern in Alberta, to provide guidance for land and resource management decisions that affect the species and their habitat. They are intended to be a resource tool for provincial and regional fish and wildlife, land and resource management staff.
