  • Our mission is to restore and sustain viable populations of native birds and their habitats in the Appalachian Mountains Joint Venture region through effective, collaborative partnerships.
  • During the 2012 fiscal year, AMJV partners improved over 18,000 acres of Golden-winged Warbler habitat within the AMJV region. This is six times greaterthan the 3000-acre goal set for the annual gains of breeding habitat in the Golden-winged Warbler Conservation Plan for the Appalachian Conservation Region.
