02 Jan Pollinator Inventory Protocol Manager (DHA)
Website Washington Support Office
The Pollinator in National Parks project will inventory pollinator diversity within 20+ parks over the next five years. All inventorying will happen using noninvasive, citizen science field methods. LHIPs on the project will participate in remote AND/OR in-person training to prepare staff for summer sampling in their local park(s). The interns will act as the primary “testers” of pollinator protocols material, providing feedback to the project manager on the effectiveness of sampling techniques conveyed through a protocol document. Employees will facilitate with field sampling collections and database management to generate species lists (presence, absence that are QAQC and reflective of IMD data management requirements). This includes learning more about the species guides for park regions (including species absences), and curating databases for NPS accessioning purposes. Pollinator sampling will focus on bumble bees and butterflies. Interns will travel to several National Park units over the length of their internship. They will learn sampling design, insect capture techniques, the pollinator pilot protocol and species guides, practice and then implement the protocol in their park and selected sites, manage the data collection, and access this data for NPS purposes.
