NSS Invites Proposals for Cave-Related Research Projects | RFPs | PND - 0 views

  •  
    With ten thousand members and two hundred and fifty "grottos" (chapters), the National Speleological Society is the largest organization in the world focused on the exploration, study, and protection of caves and their environments. For more than seventy years, NSS has promoted safe and responsible caving practices, effective cave and karst management, speleology, and conservation.
    To advance this mission, NSS awards Research Grants of up to $1,500 to qualified individuals or teams for research in cave-related branches of study. This includes but is not limited to the natural sciences (e.g., cave biology, geology, paleontology, and hydrology), social sciences (e.g., archaeology), and the humanities (e.g., speleological history). Interdisciplinary proposals are encouraged. Preference will be given to projects with the potential to generate new information and insights that are suitable for submission to peer-reviewed publications.
    Proposals may be submitted at any time. Funding decisions are made twice annually, in January and June. Proposals should be received at least one month in advance to be considered. To be considered for January 2018 funding, applications should be received no later than December 1, 2017.

Natural Resource Management and Cultural Resources Education - 0 views

  •  
    This project represents an opportunity to enter into a cooperative agreement for cultural resources outreach, education and training to further effective cultural resource management on U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Project lands. Stewardship of historic and cultural resources can be achieved by educating students, Corps staff, and public and private landowners holding outgrant leases, easements or licenses on USACE lands. A cooperative agreement with an educational institution will provide educational benefits and awareness to college students, interns, volunteers, neighbors, frequent users, the general public and future stewards of the sites, and provide benefits to the community of which these USACE sites are a part. The program would provide job training, education, and early career development for college-level students in archaeology, anthropology, and natural / cultural resource management. Students will learn appropriate survey and monitoring methods, field techniques, archival research, regulations and policy, and the latest technology to document and analyze cultural sites and historic properties.

Archaeological Data Recovery and Testing at Kozlowksiâ¿¿s Trading Post - 0 views

  •  
    The purpose of the project is to conduct archaeological data recovery and testing at the Kozlowskiâ¿¿s Trading Post at Pecos NHP in support of proposed rehabilitation/construction activities. Inside the building, the locations of concrete spot footings needed to support the new floor system will be excavated by archaeologists and all cultural resources recorded, artifacts analyzed and final report completed that summarizes present and past work within the Trading Post. Exterior work consists of remote sensing and test excavations to identify buried cultural resources in the location of a new septic line and proposed leach field southeast of the Trading Post building. This work benefits the public by providing information for interpretation and allowing for the completion of archaeological compliance, preservation, and the rehabilitation of Kozlowskiâ¿¿s Trading Post, which will be used as a visitor contact station. Furthermore, student(s) working on the project will gain valuable professional experience with archeology applied within a real world, public trust resource management setting. The information, products and/or services identified or developed by this project will be shared through a variety of strategies to increase public awareness, knowledge and support for historic preservation, and stewardship of the nationâ¿¿s cultural and historical heritage.

Archeology Site Stabilization - 0 views

  •  
    Two youth with education in archeology will be employed to complete emergency stabilization treatment of archeological sites on Great Smoky Mountain lands within the perimeters of the 2016 Chimney Tops Two and Cobbly Knob fires. Work is intended to mitigate the adverse effect to cultural resources and/or loss of cultural information. Work will include initial assessment of each site to determine the appropriate stabilization measures to be taken. Stabilization measures are anticipated to include removal of fire-killed trees, seeding areas with park approved seed mix, and scattering of woody debris/organic material at sites with steep slopes.
