Monitoring to Conserve Midwestern Birds
1) Minnesota DNR Grassland Bird Surveyor (closes April 2, 2018)
The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources requests proposals for competitive-bid contracts to survey for birds in the prairies and grasslands of southwest Minnesota. This project will be used to develop a long-term monitoring program that will require experienced bird surveyors for years to come. Four surveyors will each conduct 130 hours of whole- community bird surveys (25 – 30 mornings with suitable weather) between 25 May and 30 June 2018. Surveyors will be responsible for arranging and supplying their own transportation and lodging, but can include those expenses in their cost proposal. Survey locations include sites near Marshall, Ortonville, and Glenwood, Minnesota. Responders will have the option of submitting proposals to work in a single area or to work as a rover covering all sites. Applicants must first register as a vendor with the state of Minnesota: https://mn.gov/mmb/
