NPS cooperates with NMSU in planning and developing educational, mentoring, and intern opportunities that benefit NMSUâ¿¿s education goals while furthering knowledge about resources in parks. Students use their new knowledge to work on public land research questions and management. Specifically, students gain experience with information technology, data management, and/or GIS. In addition, students can assist Network staff or cooperators with data collection in the field and the lab as well as write non-technical reports or resource briefs that will be used by park interpretive staff and distributed to the general public.

Description: The Southwest Border Resource Protection Program (SWBRPP), located within the National Park Service (NPS) Intermountain Regional Office in Denver, provides financial assistance to NPS units, as well as educational institutions, nonprofit organizations, tribes, and local and state agencies to improve resource stewardship, achieve international cooperation, provide meaningful interpretation and conduct scientific research, which will lead to increased appreciation and understanding of our shared natural and cultural heritage along our international border with Mexico. Several National Parks located along the U.S. border with Mexico have recently experienced serious resource damage due to illegal cross border activities including drug traffickers and undocumented persons traversing the parks. Other national park units within the desert southwest have also experienced impacts to their natural and cultural resources. Thousands of miles of unauthorized roads and trails have been created, major ecological processes and the migration patterns of wildlife have been disrupted, important historic sites have been vandalized, and archaeological sites have been looted. Program funding is available for conducting scientific research and monitoring of species, as well as conservation, interpretation and preservation projects designed to help protect and preserve natural and cultural resources located near or along our international border. Applicants are strongly encouraged to work closely with at least one of ten NPS units located near the international border in the formulation of the project. These parks include Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument, Big Bend National Park, Amistad National Recreation Area, Palo Alto National Historic Site, Padre Island National Seashore, Saguaro National Park, Tumacacori National Historical Park, Chamizal National Memorial, Coronado National Memorial, and Chiricahua National Monument. The projects and activities will be individually authorized by separate awards, with each project or activity having a separate work plan and budget developed cooperatively between the NPS and the cooperator. Project categories include: Research. Documentation involving cultural resources such as: Identification, research, and evaluation of archeological and historic sites; National Register of Historic Places nominations; National Historic Landmark nominations. Research involving natural resource issues such as: Wildlife habitat management; Inventory and monitoring of invasive plants and animals; Impacts from climate change to endangered species; Assessments of the effects of border activities on threatened and endangered species. Protection. Preservation of cultural resources such as: Stabilization, rehabilitation, and restoration of historic structures, archeological sites, trails and landscapes; Conservation of collections.
