Southwest Conservation Corps’ Mission
It is the mission of the Southwest Conservation Corps to empower individuals to positively impact their lives, their communities and the environment.

Program Overview:
Interns will work in a crew of 3 people (one crew lead and two technicians) to monitor land health on National Monument lands, vegetation treatments, rangeland allotments, or reference areas. Participants will manage all aspects of vegetation monitoring using the Bureau of Land Management’s (BLM) Assessment, Inventory, and Monitoring (AIM) methodology. More information on the BLM’s AIM strategy can be found on the AIM website: Within all plots, vegetation will be identified to species; line-point intercept will be used to gather species cover and composition data; soil stability will be measured; and soil pit descriptions will be required. All data will be georeferenced using a GPS unit and stored in an ArcGIS geodatabase. Data are entered into the Database for Inventory, Monitoring, and Assessment (DIMA) on site with ruggedized tablets and are further analyzed and synthesized into various reports for future land management planning. Subsequent, professional reports must be completed and will involve the presentation of scientific data and pre and post treatment analysis. Crew may be camping 1-6 nights/week, depending on location. The crew may also have the opportunity to assist with other public land management projects involving wildlife, range and forestry.

The crew lead is responsible for: supporting and managing the field crew’s safety and wellbeing, coordinating field logistics and scheduling, managing the crew’s equipment, and completing administrative paperwork. Before, during and after field data collection the lead is responsible for the organization and quality control of all AIM data collected using both Microsoft Access and ArcGIS. The crew lead will be required to analyze and report data to various BLM offices and stakeholders. Written reports must be completed and will involve the presentation of scientific data and pre/post treatment analysis.

General Qualifications:
Applicants should have a degree in ecology, botany, range science, soil science, wildlife biology, natural resource management, conservation biology, or a related field. The crew lead position must have previous vegetation monitoring experience and have experience in a leadership role. The lead should also have experience working as part of a team and be able to work well with others. This should include excellent communication, organizational and planning skills. Applicants with previous AIM or Interpreting Indicators of Rangeland Health training are highly preferred.

Identifying plants to species and experience with a taxonomic key is essential to the position. Familiarity with New Mexico flora is beneficial. The leader should also have experience with GPS units as well as experience creating maps, performing basic analysis and organizing data within GIS software (ArcMap). Background in statistics/Microsoft Access is useful. The successful applicant must be self-motivated and able to work independently with limited supervision after the initial training period. The applicant must be able to maneuver and operate in a mixture of office and field work. This can include long periods of standing or walking on rough, uneven ground, bending, crouching, and stooping.

Applicant must be physically fit, able to stand and walk for long periods of time (at a minimum 6 miles/day) and lift items that weigh up to 40 pounds in upwards of 100 degree heat. The successful applicant will have experience and willingness to spend multiple days camping in remote areas and be familiar with best practices for field safety and Leave No Trace principles. A government vehicle will be used for work travel but a personal vehicle is highly recommended for travel to and from the duty station and for personal time. Experience safely operating 4WD trucks on paved and unpaved roads, often in remote areas on unimproved roads is also necessary. There is potential for working in adverse conditions including extreme heat and monsoonal rains and hazardous wildlife (i.e. rattlesnakes, scorpions), so field safety skills and risk management are important. The successful applicant will also attend CPR, First Aid training and Defensive Driving (or provide certification if still current). Applicant must have a valid driver’s license and a good driving record. Prior to starting this position a government security background clearance will be required.

The Quivira Coalition builds soil, biodiversity, and resilience on western working landscapes. We foster ecological, economic, and social health through education, innovation, and collaboration.
Our Land and Water program helps ranchers develop plans and management strategies for restoring and building resilience on slope wetlands, grasslands, and other working landscapes.
Our New Agrarian program helps to ensure that living and working knowledge of these practices, and the landscape itself, is stewarded into the future.
Our Education program, including our annual conference and open source publications, creates a space for our coalition to share ideas and resources, and for the general public to learn about the critical role working lands play in the health of our food systems, communities, and our planet.

The Quivira Coalition’s New Agrarian Program (NAP) partners with skilled ranchers and farmers to offer apprenticeships in regenerative agriculture. Together, we create opportunities for full-immersion learning from expert practitioners. This program is designed to support the next generation of food producers and targets those with a sincere commitment to life at the intersection of conservation and regenerative agriculture. NAP mentors are dedicated stewards of the land; they practice regenerative methods of food or fiber production, provide excellent animal care, and are skilled and enthusiastic teachers.

In 2018, we are offering paid apprenticeship opportunities including:
San Juan Ranch (Saguache, CO): San Juan Ranch is a certified organic, grass-fed beef ranch operated by George Whitten and Julie Sullivan. The apprenticeship curriculum includes Holistic Management, low-stress animal husbandry, range health monitoring, planned grazing, herding, ranch infrastructure maintenance, soil health, and grass-fed finishing.
Round River Resource Management (Rush, CO): Round River Resource Management LLC is a land resource and livestock management company run by Louis Martin improving agricultural operations through the principles of Holistic Management in a sustainable manner and consistent with the goals of the resource owner. Round River manages holistic cattle grazing on large acreage in partnership with The Nature Conservancy and the Colorado State land board.

Ranney Ranch (Corona, NM): The Ranney Ranch is a family owned cow-calf ranching operation that sits at 6200′ in the high mesa country of central New Mexico. Owner Nancy Ranney and manager Melvin Johnson will mentor the apprentice. The ranch sells young, range-finished beef direct to consumers who value how their food choices impact the environment.

Tooley’s Trees (Truchas, NM): Tooley’s Trees is a family-run, ten-acre tree nursery owned and operated by Gordon Tooley and Margaret Yancey. They grow drought tolerant fruit and conifer trees and shrubs in fabric root bags, on drip irrigation, using holistic growing practices for healthier plants and soils, higher water quality, and increased beneficial insects.

Cobblestone Ranch (Los Molinos, CA): The Cobblestone Ranch is a sheep operation based on private property and on federal wildlife refuge lands. Breanna Owens uses rotational grazing with the overall goal of maintaining and enhancing wildlife habitat and specific goals of reducing thatch, shrub and weed control, and stimulating new herbaceous growth.

Vilicus Farms (Havre, MT): Vilicus Farms is a first generation, nationally recognized organic, dryland crop farm. Anna and Doug grow a diverse array of heirloom and specialty grains, pulse, oilseed and broadleaf crops on 5600 acres, with advanced land stewardship at a scale that matters.

*More apprenticeship opportunities will be posted later this fall at*

Our mentors will be at the Quivira Conference, November 15-17 in Albuquerque, NM, and the free Career Connection job fair November 16 and welcome conversations with interested applicants.

New Agrarian Program apprentices do not always come from an agricultural background, but they are committed to regenerative land stewardship and sustainable practices. Our rancher and farmer mentors expect a lot of themselves and their apprentices. Entering agriculture is not easy and developing a vision for yourself and your operation is imperative to success.
These apprenticeships are full-time, intensive education & professional training opportunities, 50-60 hours a week, varying with the demands of season, weather, plant and animal needs.
