Aerial Surveys for Rock Springs Field Office: The recipient will provide a qualified aerial survey team including a qualified biologist to perform flights each year this money is available. Flight schedules will be coordinated with the BLM to assure the flight will occur during suitable weather and season to obtain data that is needed. The BLM will meet with the recipient to assign priority flight areas, and data goals within the boundary of the Rock Springs Field Office each fall no later than September 30 of each year. Flights should be flown between the months of October and June. The recipient will provide an annual report and associated shapefiles of the data collected and the number of sage-grouse at each lek/winter location observed that year by July 1 (shapefiles will be to a 3 meter or less accuracy, compatible with the ArcMap 9.0 GIS program and in the NAD 83 datum, Zone 12N). An annual report will be prepared by the recipient and sent to the BLM no later than September 15 of each year, before the annual meeting in September for resource staff to review.
