Volunteers Needed at Bureau of Land Management

Opportunity Type: 
Volunteer
Location of Opportunity: 
Off Campus
Host Department/Organization: 

Bureau of Land Management

Opportunity Description: 
BLM Tucson Field Office is recruiting volunteers for some of their projects. This could be the perfect opportunity for undergraduates looking for work experience with a federal agency and to learn new skills.
 

Currently, their main project is working on a roadside fence to protect sensitive soils and areas of archaeological significance. In some places on Ironwood Forest National Monument, people have driven off road- creating areas where vegetation is disturbed and the ground is torn up. This fence is to mitigate those issues. Volunteers would gain experience using Garmin GPS, hand tools, and other desirable skills associated with manual fieldwork. 

Volunteers may also have the opportunity to hike through areas of the Monument looking for border trash. Volunteers could gain experience using Garmin GPS, navigation, and other skills.

Opportunities to assist with buffelgrass, wildlife, etc may also come up later in the season.
