The spring of 2013 is shaping up to be another busy field season for Grasslands, with field surveys for nesting raptors, Mexican spotted owl, sage-grouse, mountain plover, Uinta Basin hookless cactus, and a number of additional rare plant species on our schedule for the spring. We’re looking to hire a senior biologist and a plant ecologist to join our team and help with these upcoming field projects. Click here to see these full job postings.
Over the next few months, we’ll be attending the Rock Springs Field Office Industry Conference and the USFWS Southwestern Willow Flycatcher Training. Please feel free to introduce yourself at either of these meetings and ask any questions that have come up – we’ve been in touch with BLM field offices, state wildlife offices, and the US Fish and Wildlife Service over the winter about updates to wildlife stips, survey protocols, NEPA requirements, and the ever-changing sage-grouse restrictions to make sure we’re up to date on relevant regulations. We expect the spring to be a busy season for us, and we hope the spring brings you success in your projects as well.
