About the position:
The Private Lands Wildlife Biologist (PLWB) program is a partnership among the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), South Dakota Game Fish and Parks (SDGFP), National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF), and Bird Conservancy of the Rockies (Bird Conservancy) focused on delivering wildlife conservation programs on private lands in western South Dakota. The program provides technical resources to landowners and other land managers to more fully incorporate wildlife conservation on their private lands. By integrating Bird Conservancy technical resources with NRCS, SDGFP, NFWF and Bird Conservancy funding mechanisms and technical capacities, the PLWB partnership supports a collaborative and human-focused approach to private lands conservation. Specifically, the PLWB will implement this work in mixed-grass prairie communities and focus on providing technical assistance to agricultural producers that complements agricultural production and protects, enhances and restores grassland bird habitat. Currently, the Bird Conservancy PLWB partnership operates in six western states (Colorado, New Mexico, Nebraska, Wyoming, South Dakota, and Montana) and Mexico (Chihuahua). PLWBs succeed through direct and meaningful relationships with landowners and supported by NRCS incentives provided through US Farm Bill and other habitat enhancement programs. This position will be located in western South Dakota (Sturgis field office preferred) and will require travel throughout the region. This is a full-time position with a comprehensive benefits package.
