- Request for Statements of Interest & Qualifications, Documentation, Preparation and Completion of Nomination for National Register Archeological District
Date Posted: 5/02/2013
Closing Date: 5/20/2013
Archeological sites were first formally recorded in the Eli Creek/Jones Hole area of Dinosaur National Monument in1947 by Robert Stirling. Subsequent archeological inventories, recording and documentation efforts by the David Breternitz from the University of Colorado from 1963 to 1965 and the NPS MWAC in 1981, 1988 and 1989 have identified a total of 29 archeological sites. At least 9 sites include petroglyph panels. Several sites have been excavated including Deluge Shelter, 42UN1 by Leech in 1966 and 1967. The 29 archeological sites are all located with the drainages of Eli Creek and Jones Hole Creek and cover an area less than 320 acres.
Dinosaur National Monument would like to have a National Register Archeological District Nomination prepared for this complex of archeological sites. The work would include the relocation of all known sites. Complete documentation and completed Utah State site forms to current State and Archeological standards. The scope of work also includes a literature search and the preparation of narrative describing the potential archeological knowledge and significance of the sites. Finally all previous work would be used to prepare a National Register Nomination for an Eli Creek/Jones Hole Creek archeological District. More Information.
- Request for Statements of Interest & Qualifications Evaluate the Effectiveness of aerial Application of Herbicides for Bufflegrass Control and Effects to Native Vegetation
Date Posted: 4/24/2013
Closing Date: 5/15/2013
The National Park Service (NPS) is requesting information on the interest and qualifications of potential investigators(s) to assist with a project to evaluate the effectiveness of aerial herbicide treatments to control buffelgrass (Pennisetum ciliare) and the associated impact on native flora. Responses to this request will be used to identify potential investigator(s) for a multi-year project that will be funded by the NPS Natural Resource Preservation Program (NRPP). Saguaro National Park received a grant beginning in 2013 to implement and monitor aerial application of herbicide for invasive plant control. Funding level is anticipated to be approximately $20,000 for the first year (2013-2014) with anticipated funding in 2015-2016, but will not exceed $50,000 over the four-year monitoring period.
The overarching goal of this project is to inform management of the effectiveness of multiple aerial treatments of herbicide (glyphosate) for buffelgrass control using a helicopter with a boom spray mount and potentially a spray ball or equivalent piece of equipment. The intent is to determine the feasibility and effectiveness at an operational scale and to incorporate adaptive management decision-making based on monitoring results. In order to achieve this goal, a series of objectives has been developed. More information.

- 12th Biennial Conference of Science and Management on the Colorado
Themes: Rapid Climate Change, Social, and Technological
Changes on the Colorado Platueau
Conference Dates: 9/16/2013-9/19/2013
The 12th Biennial Conference of Science and Management on the Colorado Plateau is a forum that brings together resource managers and research scientists to discuss findings and management needs associated with the natural and cultural resources of the Colorado Plateau. Climate change, energy development, and human population growth on the Colorado Plateau affect water availability, natural systems, and the social character of the plateau. The conference will focus on these agents of change, identifying resource responses to change and opportunities to discuss approaches to ameliorate or reduce negative impacts to the Colorado Plateau’s natural and cultural landscape. The conference will include plenary speakers, symposia and contributed paper sessions, and a poster session.
