Edwards AFB encompasses approximately 308,180 acres in the Antelope Valley in southern California and is located in the western Mojave Desert. Fish and wildlife program management focuses on conserving desert habitat on Edwards AFB. Native wildlife includes a wide variety of invertebrates, reptiles, amphibians, birds, and mammals adapted to various desert habitats on base. Natural resource management is critical to the maintenance of biodiversity which provides critical support to the military mission. Periodic fauna surveys are conducted to determine fauna presence, trends, and viability of various animal species. Long-term monitoring is a fundamental aspect of adaptive management to determine the overall health of the ecosystem and allow a focused and cost-effective monitoring program.

Preference will be given to statements of interest that demonstrate field technicians that have at least five years of experience conducting point count surveys and be able to accurately identify riparian birds by sight and audibly and estimate distance and direction using common field instruments, as well as a principal investigator that has the ability to synthesize collected field data into a cohesive report, including methods, results, statistical analysis, and management recommendations.
