Geomorphology Assistant - Southeast Arizona Group (Diversity Internship) Posted Jan 06
Environment for the Americas , Hereford, AZ
Salary Details: $480 per week
Deadline: Feb 03, 2020

The National Park Services Southeast Arizona Group (SEAZ) includes Coronado National Memorial, Chiricahua National Monument (CHIR), and Fort Bowie National Historic Site. The trio of parks are managed by one leadership team, headed by a superintendent.

Chiricahua National Monument, located in Southeastern Arizona, has a documented history of slope instability and erosion. The intern will help establish the Unstable Slope Management Program for Federal Land Management Agencies (USMP for FLMAs) at Chiricahua National Monument and continue our current erosion control projects at Coronado National Memorial. USMP will be adopted to identify, categorize, and rate slopes along trails and roads using the USMP rating criteria. Field data collection and observations will be recorded using USMP data applications and data sheets. The USMP was started at CHIR with the help of a MIS intern in the summer 2019. Large-scale erosion control efforts at Coronado National Memorial and Rancho Los Fresnos (Sonora, Mexico) were initiated through Southwest Border Resource protection program funds in 2017. We implemented the majority of treatments in 2019 and we are now in the monitoring stage.
