Funding Opportunities for Drought Contingency Planning and Resiliency Projects Available from Bureau of Reclamation
The Bureau of Reclamation has made two funding opportunities available to help water users develop drought contingency plans and build long-term drought resiliency as part of Reclamation's Drought Response Program. These opportunities will be allocated through a competitive process. The drought resiliency project funding opportunity is for projects that will increase the reliability of water supply; improve water management; implement systems to facilitate the voluntary sale, transfer, or exchange of water; and provide benefits for fish, wildlife, and the environment to mitigate impacts caused by drought. States, tribes, irrigation districts, water districts, and other organizations with water or power delivery authority are invited to leverage their money and resources by cost sharing with Reclamation. It is available at www.grants.gov by searching for funding opportunity number R16-FOA-DO-006. The drought contingency planning funding opportunity is for applicants to request funding to develop a new drought plan or to update an existing drought plan. Applicants may also request technical assistance from Reclamation for the development of elements of the Drought Contingency Plan. States, Indian tribes, irrigation districts, water districts, and other organizations with water or power delivery authority are eligible for this funding opportunity. It is available at www.grants.gov by searching for funding opportunity number R16-FOA-DO-005. Approximately $6 million will be available for both funding opportunities. Applicants must also provide a 50 percent non-Federal cost-share. Applications are due on April 11, 2016, by 4 p.m. MDT as indicated in the funding opportunities. For more than 100 years, Reclamation and its partners have worked to develop a sustainable water and power future for the West. This program is part of the Department of the Interior's WaterSMART Program, which focuses on improving water conservation and sustainability, while helping water resource managers make sound decisions about water use. To find out more information about Reclamation's WaterSMART program, visit www.usbr.gov/watersmart, or visit the Drought Response Program at www.usbr.gov/drought.

JOB ANNOUNCEMENT: Ecological Educator, Institute for Applied Ecology
The Institute for Applied Ecology (IAE) is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to conserve native species and habitats through restoration, research and education. Our Southwest Program works in New Mexico and Arizona. We cultivate partnerships to facilitate large-scale, regional conservation projects, develop ecologically appropriate sources of native seed, provide native species education opportunities and materials, and conduct on-the-ground habitat restoration and applied research. IAE Southwest Program seeks to hire an Albuquerque-based Ecological Educator that will work with our Santa Fe office education staff to deliver the 2018 Forest Bound summer program (https://appliedeco.org/forest-bound-launches/ ). The Forest Bound program utilizes place-based, interdisciplinary lessons from the native plant curriculum “From Ponderosa to Prickly Pear, Exploring the Native Plants of New Mexico” (https://appliedeco.org/programs/education/about-projectbotany/project-botany-new-mexico/). The goal of Forest Bound is to provide an opportunity for Santa Fe and Albuquerque high school students to learn about careers in natural resources and gain skills in native plant ecology in an experiential learning setting.
Job Opening at Valles Caldera National Preserve
The Valles Caldera National Preserve is now hiring for 2015 seasonal field technicians in the Plant Ecology Department. Application deadline is February 20, 2015.
Los Lunas (NM) Plant Materials Center
Many Southwestern riparian sites require revegetation following the removal of invasive woody species such as saltcedar and Russian olive. To establish riparian vegetation with minimal or no follow-up irrigation, to improve survival and growth rates, and to reduce long-term revegetation costs, the Los Lunas Plant Materials Center (LLPMC) has focused its efforts on developing new, deep planting techniques for use in riparian restoration in the Southwest.

National Fish Passage Program Request for Proposals 2011
Through its National Fish Passage Program the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service uses a voluntary, non-regulatory approach to remove and bypass barriers. The program provides technical assistance and funding to assist others in restoring fish passage. Proposals should keep in mind the program goal to restore native fish and other aquatic species to self-sustaining levels by reconnecting habitat that has been fragmented by barriers. All projects must be located in New Mexico.
New Mexico
Fire season in New Mexico has many chilling meanings. There are the immediate impacts - loss of homes, devastation of wildlife habitat, loss of vegetation, and alteration of most features we think of when we visualize our mountain lands. At the Natural Resources Conservation Service, fire season has another meaning for it can mean a time to mobilize resources to protect the land and people from the aftermath of fires through Emergency Watershed Protection (EWP).
New Mexico Forest Re-Leaf Grant Applications Now Being Accepted

New Video! Farms are the Future in New Mexico
The Middle Rio Grande is a precious thread of water through the desert. Here, the migratory bird flyway narrows into a small corridor along this river because it becomes practically the only water source for thousands of miles, east and west. Conservation partners in the Middle Rio Grande know that every square mile of the river is important for wildlife, especially birds. Landowners, non-governmental organizations, federal and state agencies, tribes, and others are all crucial advocates here. Watch this short video to hear directly from a diverse coalition of people who are working together to keep the Middle Rio Grand intact.
NM Fire Info
The NM Fire Info website is an interagency effort by federal and state agencies in New Mexico to provide timely, accurate fire and restriction information for the entire state. The agencies that support this site are National Park Service, Fish and Wildlife Service, Bureau of Indian Affairs, State of New Mexico, Forest Service, and Bureau of Land Management. It provides FAQs and resources for New Mexicans living near fire-prone environments, plus current information on wildland fires, prescribed burns, restrictions and closures in the state.

NM Forestry Division publishes a list of fire-resistant plants
What do the words “forest and watershed health” mean to you? Not long ago, the health of our forests and water was not a concern for most citizens. But, after several years of drought, highly visible insect and disease devastation and an overall increase in the knowledge of our natural resources, New Mexicans are concerned about our forests and watershed health. We, at New Mexico State Forestry are responsible for wildfire suppression on all non-federal, non-municipal, non-tribal and non-pueblo lands. We also provide technical advice on forest and resource management to private landowners, and may include a commercial timber harvest to enhance wildlife habitat, increase water yield, reduce the hazard of insect infestation, diseases or fire.
NM Forestry Division's Seedling Program
For more than 40 years the Division has offered low cost seedlings to landowners to plant for reforestation, erosion control, windbreaks, or Christmas tree plantations. Since 1960, more than four million trees have been planted throughout New Mexico that were purchased through this program.
