BLM-(Arizona), Yume Field Office (YFO) RESTORATION CREWS


Description of Program and/or Project a. Background: The Yuma Field Office includes many acres along the lower Colorado and Gila Rivers. Extensive damming and conversion to upland has re-characterized the lands along the river that once were natural system, but are now dominated by invasive species. An increase in wildland fires in these areas also greatly affect the reduction in native vegetation and increase in invasive species. Rehabilitation efforts to improve sites offer migratory birds and other wildlife species native habitat for foraging and potential nesting. Crews would work within the Yuma Field Office to assist in restoration activities for threatened and endangered species, prime wildlife habitat, and wildlife fire damage rehabilitation. Main tasks include; chainsaw and hand-tool vegetation clearing, tree planting, seeding, concrete maintenance, irrigation pump maintenance, herbicide application, and light equipment operation (chipper, auger, chainsaw, etc.). b. Objectives: The principle purpose of this agreement is to improve wildlife habitat by offering properly functioning native riparian habitats along the lower Gila River. Wildlife habitat, improvement projects increases partnerships, public involvement, and prime native riparian habitat within degraded and minimally functioning systems. The objective of this agreement is for the public to gain an appreciation for wildlife and their habitats within Arizona so that wildlife are available for future generations to enjoy. The efforts by Federal, state, and private partners along the Colorado and Gila Rivers will ensure the improvement of riparian systems within current degraded and minimally functioning systems.
