Regional Glade Conservation Assessment

Glades and glade-woodland complexes are natural communities which provide high-quality habitat for several priority bird species including the Prairie Warbler, Blue-winged Warbler, Field Sparrow, Northern Bobwhite, Eastern Wood-Pewee. We also recognize the importance of glade complexes to other flora and fauna species of conservation concern.

This collaborative effort analyzes and documents the current status and distribution of glade ecosystems within the Central Hardwoods Bird Conservation Region planning area was completed in 2013. This assessment is the first step in identifying glade complexes with the greatest potential to address the habitat needs of numerous species of conservation concern associated with these shallow bedrock communities.
