Wildlife Conservation Support
Addressing migratory bird conservation and wildlife habitat concerns are an important part of the Environmental Stewardship goals of OSMRE and of concern to the American public. The AmeriCorps Member will assist in the review of mining permit applications, including but not limited to wildlife habitat restoration plans and migratory bird conservation measures. Member will also assist in reviewing environmental compliance information, summarizing environmental monitoring data presented in annual reclamation reports, and developing formats that present this data in a way that can be easily accessed and understood by the public. The development of this information will enable OSMRE to better provide the American public with accurate information and will later be used in the evaluation of reclamation liability bond release applications submitted by the mine permittees.
