TEAMS Archaeologist Amanda Campbell has been named along with Midewin National Tall Grass staff as recipients of a Eastern Region Honor award for the following: “Applying Knowledge Globally".

This award recognizes Forest Service individuals, work units, partnerships, or groups whose sustained research productivity has had a major impact on the advancement of science and the development and application of technology.

The nominated achievement must demonstrate the value and dissemination of scientific knowledge to internal or external groups or partners.

This award was associated with the heritage work TEAMS heritage group did to reintroduce bison to the Midewin Prairie. While Amanda was named as a recipient, she shares the honor with the rest of the heritage group who worked on this important project.

"Congratulations on your hard work, and consistent work on Midewin. We did some awesome things and it feels great to be a part of a project from beginning to end! Way to go!" Amanda                                              

Tagging Along on the 4FRI Project

--By Cindy White
I recently had an opportunity to join TEAMS Enterprise Unit co-workers and new employees starting work on the 4FRI project in Northern Arizona.  It was a welcome trip, seeing old friends, sparking questions about the Forest Service from brand new employees, the vibrancy and excitement, and especially a field visit dedicated to learning how to survey for northern goshawks, a sensitive species within the 4FRI project area More-->

The Vail Intermountain Fuels Project Decision Notice and Finding of No Significant Impact on the White River National Forest was signed in March. This was a Healthy Forest Restoration Act (HFRA) project within the community of Vail, Colorado and Katherine’s first HFRA project…she can admit that now. There were no objections and the forest was pleased with work the interdisciplinary team (IDT) completed for them.

The Mt. Hood National Forest, USDA Enterprise Program Watershed Restoration Division, and partners have received several awards for the Still Creek Stream Channel and Floodplain Restoration Project. Aside from an Oregon Land Board award in 2013, the group recently received the Forest Service’s 2015 Rise to the Future award and the American Fisheries Society’s 2015 Western Conference Riparian Challenge award. This innovative project has restored 3.7 miles of stream channel, 4.6 miles of side channels, and over 90 acres of wetlands and floodplains designated as critical habitat for the threatened Lower Columbia River coho, spring Chinook, and winter steelhead.

Working with TEAMS has been one of the best experiences in my life, and I thank you for the opportunity. I couldn't have asked for a better group of wildlife nerds to work with. Also you and Jennifer are amazing and it has been a pleasure working under you both. I hope to take the knowledge that I've gained and apply it to future jobs.

Thank you,

Andrew Zimmerman, Coconino National Forest, Wildlife Technician, July 2016
