Important Bird Areas

In October 2009, the National Important Bird Area (IBA) Technical Committee accepted the nomination of the Allegheny Highland Important Bird Area to become prioritized as globally important for bird conservation. The IBA, particularly important for Golden-winged and Cerulean Warblers, has large portions owned and managed by The Nature Conservancy, Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries, and George Washington National Forest. Private landowners are also working with USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service to preserve key early successional lands and water quality within the region.
