The American Bird Conservancy is working to restore land around decommissioned mines. Partnered with the U.S. Department of the Interior’s Office of Surface Mining Reclamation and Enforcement, the goal is to manage habitat for breeding Cerulean Warblers, Wood Thrushes, and other mature forest birds.
In addition to mature forest restoration the land is being managed for more open area species such as Henslow’s Sparrow and Golden-winged Warbler.
