About Tri-Valley Wildlife Area Important Bird Area
A large reclaimed surface mine. The habitat is primarily grassland with some forest habitat. 15,137 acres = 6125.94 hectares.

Most of the area has been subjected to surface mining in the past. The reclamation process after mining has led to large patches of grassland habitats, which is rare in Ohio. These patches hold large numbers of breeding grassland birds. Henslow’s Sparrow is common throughout the extensive grasslands along with Grasshopper Sparrow and Bobolink.
