Kinney Creek - Applegate River Area
Jackson County, OR

Kinney Creek is a few miles downstream of the Applegate Dam on the Applegate River in Southern Oregon. This location is a spot that I have studied in the butterfly literature as having California Crescent in the past. The last two years I’ve searched for them here but found none. This year was a success and it follows the success I had just south of here at Ash Creek. It is a great year for California Crescent!
