Using data collected by the NRSS Northeast Temperate Network Inventory and Monitoring Program, local subject experts, iNaturalist, and eBird app users, the MIS intern will examine habitat conditions and suitability within the Concord Farms and Fields area of the park, and prepare recommendations for preserving, protecting, and/or improving habitat conditions for these rare species. The MIS intern will collaborate with subject matter experts, a biodiversity team, and participate in a July 4, 5, 6, 2019 Bioblitz.
