Habitat Coordinator/Private Lands Wildlife Biologist – Bird Conservancy of the Rockies
Bird Conservancy of the Rockies is hiring for three positions on our Stewardship team: one Habitat Coordinator based in Fort Collins, CO and two Private Lands Wildlife Biologists (PLWBs) based in Sturgis, SD and Gillette, WY. The Stewardship team works collaboratively with the Natural Resources Conservation Service and state wildlife agencies to implement on-the-ground conservation on privately owned agricultural land. The Habitat Coordinator will remotely co-supervise 4-5 biologists stationed in the eastern plains of Colorado and New Mexico. The Habitat Coordinator will provide mentoring and coaching to the biologists, build relationships with partners, help secure long-term funding for the program, provide expertise on grassland bird habitat needs and management actions, and serve as a member of the Stewardship leadership team. The PLWBs will provide technical resources to landowners and other land managers to more fully incorporate wildlife conservation on their private lands using voluntary, incentive-based funding opportunities (e.g. Farm Bill, state wildlife agency program funds, etc.). The PLWBs will be based in local NRCS field offices and will require travel throughout the region using a provided vehicle. Qualified applicants will be passionate and knowledgeable about the resource concerns, human dynamics, avian communities and habitat interventions in their respective regions, and should be a solutions-oriented thinker ready to navigate the challenges and opportunities of implementing conservation with partners in rural agricultural communities
