The Appalachian Mountains Joint Venture (AMJV) is a regional partnership of over 45 state and federal agencies, conservation organizations, and universities. Guided by our mission and vision, we are committed to the conservation of habitat for the benefit of birds, wildlife, and people in the core of the Appalachian Region.
Our partnership stretches from the southwestern Appalachians in Alabama to the northeastern highlands in southern New York. This area encompasses 103 million acres across portions of Tennessee, Kentucky, Ohio, Alabama, Georgia, North Carolina, Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York, and all of West Virginia and contains some of the largest expanses of forest remaining in the eastern United States.
The Appalachian Mountains Joint Venture is located on the campus of Virginia Tech within the Conservation Management Institute.
