The National Park Service's Southeast Arizona Group (SEAZ) includes Coronado National Memorial, Chiricahua National Monument, and Fort Bowie National Historic Site. The trio of parks are managed by one leadership team, headed by a superintendent.
Chiricahua National Monument, located in Southeastern Arizona, has a documented history of slope instability and erosion. The main goal of this internship is to establish the Unstable Slope Management Program for Federal Land Management Agencies (USMP for FLMAs) at Chiricahua National Monument and continue our current erosion control projects at Coronado National Memorial. USMP will be adopted to identify, categorize, and rate slopes along trails and roads using the USMP rating criteria. Field data collection and observations will be recorded using USMP data applications and data sheets. The USMP was implemented and completed at Coronado National Memorial with the help of a MIS intern in the summer 2018.
