Job: Ecological Field Monitoring Leads (posted January 11, 2017)

Job Description:

The ecological monitoring program at GBI serves as an excellent professional development opportunity for burgeoning natural resource professionals looking for experience in botanical, soil, and rangeland surveys. This program is a component of our well-established Research Associate Program, which focuses on the conservation of natural resources in the Intermountain West.

As an element of this program, participants will implement the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) national Assessment, Inventory, and Monitoring (AIM) strategy, which is targeted at collecting standardized inventory and long-term ecological data at multiple scales across western public lands.

In some locations, participants will also implement the BLM Habitat Assessment Framework (HAF), which is aimed at collecting habitat assessment data on public land with the purpose of informing conservation efforts for sage-grouse habitat. Opportunities in other locations (Boise, ID, Wenatchee, WA) apply AIM sampling to post-wildfire Emergency Stabilization and Rehabilitation (ESR) monitoring.

In accordance with these strategies and through partnerships with multiple agencies, GBI’s ecological monitoring program is dedicated to providing college graduates and emerging professionals with hands-on survey, inventory, monitoring, and reporting experience in natural resource management.

2017 Sagebrush Ecosystem Program Credit Project Seed-Funding Opportunity (posted January 10, 2017)

The State of Nevada is pleased to announce that funds are available through the Sagebrush Ecosystem Program for projects initiated in 2017 that will enhance and restore high-quality greater sage-grouse habitat on private and public land. The purpose of these funds is two-fold: (1) improve greater sage-grouse habitat in the State of Nevada, and (2) create a supply of "compensatory mitigation credits" to fulfill mitigation needs of future BLM and USFWS permits through the Nevada Conservation Credit System (Credit System).

Funding will support implementation of habitat improvements, including the development of management plans, analyses of habitat quality, and completion of all steps necessary for projects to be ready to sell credits through the Conservation Credit System. Funded projects will establish a mutually beneficial partnership between the project proponent and the State. The State will provide proejct proponents with upfront financial and technical assistance necessary to implement projects that generate credits. Future credit sales will create the opportunity for the project proponent to receive additional payments and for the State to recover the funding provided. Terms of cost recovery will be defined with each project proponent as part of the agreement to receive funds for each funding project.
