Working to protect important habitat

Bottomland hardwood forests are flooded forests occurring along waterways, generally in broad floodplains. Wide, diverse, floodplain forests are globally rare, have high bird species richness, and provide breeding habitat for species of concern. Audubon Arkansas envisions land managers across the Mississippi Flyway adopting conservation management tools and practices that result in forest conditions that support viable populations of bottomland hardwood dependent birds.
