    The AF manages lands in all states and territories in accordance with all Federal environmental laws and regulations, including the Sikes Act, National Environmental Policy Act, National Historic Preservation Act, Endangered Species Act, Clean Water Act, and others. The AFCEC Environmental Center of Excellence (ECOE) requires technical support for environmental programs to ensure that AF, federal, and state environmental regulations are met while minimizing the impact of AF activities on natural resources. The cooperative agreement establishes a cost-effective, time-efficient and flexible capability to support AFCEC program. The Government will periodically issue Task Orders to provide for the maintenance and improvement of natural and cultural resources on, or to benefit natural historic research on, the installations or at installation support centers.

    Project Title: Integrated Wildland Fire Management Plan Lualualei, Navy Region Hawaii
    Date: Review of RSOI will begin 5 Aug 2014
    This project provides fire management planning documents and wildland fire expertise to facilitate the development of an Integrated Wildland Fire Management Plan (IWFMP) that is compliant with all pertinent DOD, Navy, state, local, and other federal regulations. The IWFMP will formalize existing fire pre-suppression and suppression measures as well as any current or proposed prescribed fire program. The plan will update, where necessary, wildland firefighter training, fuels management, and firefighting procedures to meet currently applicable requirements and targets desired by the Navy (Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam [JBPHH], Navy Munitions Command East Asia Division [NMC EAD], Naval Communications Area Master Station Naval Radio Transmitter Facility [NCTAMS NRTF]). The plan will make considerations for operations and training requirements, ecosystem health and function, cultural and natural resources, and social and financial concerns among others.
    The plan will include all required elements of an IWFMP as defined by the Army Integrated Wildland Fire Management Plan Template since there is no Navy IWFMP guidance. Additional elements will be considered on a case by case basis in coordination with the Navy.

  • The 12th Biennial Scientific Conference on the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem
    The Program Committee of the 12th Biennial Scientific Conference on the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem is pleased to announce the next conference in this series, which will focus on the challenges and opportunities posed by crossing environmental, disciplinary, and jurisdictional boundaries. The conference will be held October 6‒8, 2014 in Mammoth Hot Springs, Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming.  The Greater Yellowstone biennial scientific conference series, initiated in 1991, encourages awareness and application of wide-ranging, high-caliber scientific work on the region's natural and cultural resources. These conferences, with the active involvement of professional societies and other institutions, provide a much-needed forum for knowledge-sharing among hundreds of researchers, park managers, and the general public. They attract world-class speakers and are interdisciplinary by design.
