    Colorado Open Lands (COL) is accepting applications for a two-year Fellowship to manage our Grain for Cranes project based in Monte Vista, Colorado. COL, MillerCoors, and the US Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) are working together to better understand the complex relationship between Sandhill Cranes and agriculture in the San Luis Valley (SLV), in south-central Colorado.   This Fellowship will focus on understanding private land conservation, agriculture, and public lands management through the lens of Sandhill Crane migration and barley production. It will involve a variety of experiences including monitoring conservation easements on private lands, working on active barley farms, monitoring and analyzing data on Sandhill Cranes, surveying barley producers, and working with a variety of partners and organizations! In addition, it will help ensure that Sandhill Cranes have enough barley to eat during their migration all while building positive relationships with barley farmers and wildlife refuge managers and visitors.

    The position is exempt, 40 hours/week (100% time), salary $36,000/year, two year-term with benefits  (medical & HSA, vision, dental, 401k, PTO, etc.).  For more details, see our website: http://coloradoopenlands.org/about-colorado-open-lands/careers/.
