Watch our April Fools video about the amazing return of the glawackus.
In the 1930’s, travelers and adventures traveled to southeast Columbia County in search of the glawackus. On April 24, 1939, The Springfield Union declared that “The [last remaining] glawackus, fierce and unique creature. . . perished Sunday morning.”
In the past 25 years, Columbia Land Conservancy has made tremendous gains in protecting wildlife habitat in the Glawackus region. Around the creature’s historical home, CLC has created a conservation block of over 5,000 acres and has established two Public Conservation Areas – Round Ball Mountain and Drowned Lands Swamp.
