Central Hardwoods (Bird) Joint Venture

The Central Hardwoods Joint Venture (CHJV; is a bird conservation partnership of State, Federal, and non-governmental organizations that endeavors to implement bird conservation actions that protect the long-term health of native bird species. Established in 2000, the boundaries of the CHJV encompass six states and the Central Hardwoods Bird Conservation Region-part of the North American Bird Conservation Initiative - a national strategy for conserving native bird species.  Based on the principles of sound science and adaptive management, CHJV facilitates efficient landscape level planning targeting habitat with the most potential to support priority bird species populations. It should be noted that the CHJV has officially requested reassignment from the Appalachian LCC to the Gulf Coastal Plains and Ozarks LCC (a final decision was not reached at publication).
