PAPO Seeks Proposals for Mesa Fertilization Monitoring


The Pinedale Anticline Project Office (PAPO) is accepting proposals to collect and evaluate the vegetative effects of fertilization projects on the Mesa mule deer winter range south of Pinedale, Wyo.

Two Mesa sites have been fertilized: 468 acres in 2010 and 1,000 acres in 2011. Existing PAPO data on these sites will be available to the successful project proponent.

Proposals should include the data collection field seasons of 2012 and 2013. Project proponents must be capable of evaluating the statistical significance of shrub and herbaceous production and changes in vegetation composition as well as canopy and ground cover.

Proposals must be delivered or mailed to 1625 W. Pine St., P.O. Box 768, Pinedale, WY 82941 or emailed to dostroud@blm.gov no later than Monday, Jan. 30.

The PAPO, for any reason, can reject any or all submitted proposals. Any proposal considered for funding by the PAPO must be approved by the PAPO Board.

For more information, please contact Dan Stroud at 307-367-5387.
