Hybrid Lupine Fest This Year At Albany Pine Bush Preserve

May 10, 2021

An annual milestone at the Albany Pine Push Preserve is set for Saturday. Lupine Fest — a hybrid of in-person and virtual events this year due to the pandemic — runs through June 5. The springtime ritual aligns with the blooming of stunning lupine flowers, the food source for the preserve’s endangered Karner Blue Butterfly.
