West Virginia Project
Pre- and Post-Treatment Monitoring on Working Lands for Wildlife and Regional Conservation Partnership Program Sites in West Virginia
August 2018 - March 2021

Cerulean Warbler (Setophaga cerulea; CERW) and Golden-winged Warbler (Vermivora chrysoptera; GWWA) are two high-priority species for conservation on private lands in West Virginia through NRCS conservation practices. The effectiveness of these conservation practices for increasing CERW and GWWA populations on private lands has not been examined. We have partnered with West Virginia Division of Natural Resources and Natural Resources Conservation Service to quantify avian populations pre- and post-implementation of management. Results will help to improve future habitat management actions for these species.
