About Cuyahoga Valley National Park-Lower Cuyahoga River Important Bird Area
Stretching from the city of Akron downstream to the mouth of the Cuyahoga River, this IBA is dominated by the Cuyahoga Valley National Park (CVNP) for much of its extent. The CVNP is the largest permanent undeveloped area remaining along the 22 miles between Cleveland and Akron and provides recreational needs for an urban population of about four million people in the immediate vicinity. It preserves scenic, natural and historical settings of the Cuyahoga River Valley. Forest areas are characterized by isolated woodlands of varying sizes. A mixture of hemlocks and hardwood species is found on some steeper slopes. Glacial kames, terraces, and beaver-modified wetlands are found in the valley. It is located in the glaciated part of the Allegheny Plateau and encompasses a string of Metroparks along the lower Cuyahoga floodplain plus a number of major tributaries. Two Cleveland Metroparks reservations and three Metroparks of the Summit County park system are within the boundaries of the CVNP, but they are owned and managed by the respective Metroparks.

This combination of upland forest, ravine, slope, succession, edge and wetland habitat provides for a large diversity of breeding bird species including populations of Cerulean Warbler, Hooded Warbler, Yellow-billed Cuckoo, Wood Thrush, and Scarlet Tanager. It is also demonstrably an important spring and fall migratory stopover region for land birds.
