    The object of this agreement is to provide for a more efficient inventory, treatment, and monitoring of invasive plant and noxious weed infestations through joint activities on BLM-managed public and private lands. Invasive plants and noxious weeds have established on and migrated from one jurisdiction to another and are a mutual problem for both public and private land managers/owners within the local area.

BLM-OR/WA Engaging Youth in Natural Resource Conservation and Public Land Management Pr... - 0 views

  •  
    From rangeland management to protection of cultural resources; fire suppression to energy development; trails and travel management to National Conservation Lands, the BLM values public involvement and a collaborative environment. When we facilitate activities and uses of the public lands, they are designed, permitted, and monitored with the goal of retaining or returning the land to a healthy condition once the use or activity ends. Our objective is to provide opportunities for youth (ages 16-30 years of age) to engage in BLM cultural and natural resource conservation-related projects and to increase public awareness and appreciation of those resources and recreational resource values found on public lands. These projects will provide participants with a mix of work experience, education, training, community involvement and support services, as well as the opportunity to develop citizenship values and skills through service to their community and the United States. As the young men and women gain experience in natural and cultural resource management, they will also develop an appreciation for public lands and learn about conservation-related career fields

BLM-Oregon, land Health Monitoring Vale District - 0 views

  •  
    In 2004, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) conducted a program evaluation of the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) resource protection activities. The OMB found gaps in the monitoring of resource conditions to support management decisions and that the BLM had no reliable mechanism for reporting on the condition of public lands above the local scale. The BLM established an Interdisciplinary Core Team that evaluated assessment processes, resource inventories, and monitoring procedures and developed a comprehensive plan of action that would lay the foundation for a monitoring strategy. Two reports, (1) the Local Workgroup Report for the National Assessment, Inventory, and Monitoring Strategy (BLM 2007) and (2) the Findings and Recommendations for Regional Monitoring for Wildlife and Water with an Emphasis on Energy Development (Falise et al. 2008), were also completed and provided vision toward developing an Assessment, Inventory, and Monitoring (AIM) Strategy. Additional or supplemental data collection for fuels treatments (pre and post treatment), wilderness study area monitoring, and rangeland health indicators provide the information to determine the effectiveness of management actions, and may be shared across BLM offices and interested publics.

  •  
    This is a notice of intent to award a single source grant agreement to University of Wisconsin-La Crosse without competition under justification 505DM 2.14.B.4. Competition for the award is not practical as a faculty member with University of Wisconsin-La Crosse is an expert in zooplankton ecology and the university's proximity to study sites near La Crosse- Wisconsin is optimal for the efficient pursuit of the intended research program. Competition for this award is impractical because other researchers lack the faculty member's unique expertise and/or would require additional funding for travel to complete the proposed research program.
