Funding influxes such as the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law and Inflation Reduction Act are providing an unprecedented opportunity to get work done throughout the conservation field. The IWJV seeks to support and establish capacity positions throughout the West to enable implementation of these historic funding sources. These positions are made possible by partner entities like the Natural Resources Conservation Service and other federal, state, and local stakeholders.

Each position we host is uniquely crafted to meet the needs of a given landscape and project type, involving disciplines such as wildlife biologists, range conservationists, and engineering technicians. The focus of our conservation capacity ranges greatly, from building beaver dam analogs, to restoring wet meadows, to coordinating regional partnerships implementing landscape conservation.
