BLM WY Internships: A. Project Background Information: The Wyoming State Office of the Bureau of Land Management (WY-BLM) administers millions of acres of public land. These public lands contain diverse natural communities that support a large number of native plants and animals. BLM?s resource protection mission, and associated strategic plan, calls for BLM field managers to create habitat conditions that enable biological communities to flourish. To help BLM complete the field level tasks associated with accomplishing this performance measure, and to provide recent college graduates with opportunities to gain hands-on land management work experience, the WY-BLM will offer internship opportunities administered by the successful applicant. B. Project Objective: The objective of this project is to provide opportunities for college graduates to gain hands-on experience in natural resource management, specifically in the areas of conservation biology, endangered species protection and management, conservation of sensitive species, and the management of public lands. This would be achieved by establishing a mentoring program whereby college graduates work directly with BLM staff to apply the skills and knowledge gained during their education in a real-world setting, while learning new skills and knowledge. Interns will have the opportunity to learn firsthand about land management challenges and responsibilities, applicable Federal laws and regulations, and how a Federal land management Bureau functions. . C. Period of Project: 5 years
