Description: In 2010, station researchers provided land managers and policymakers with critical information related to ecological processes, environmental threats, forest management, and use of natural resources. The station also capitalized on opportunities to expand its research in these arenas. The 2009 American Recovery and Reinvestment Act was one such opportunity that has both created jobs and developed scientific knowledge that will enhance management of our natural resources. Thus far, 219 people have been employed with money the station received under the act. They have worked on projects that range from road maintenance to developing computer-based models that predict smoke impacts from wildfires. The variety of jobs created has provided opportunities for people with many different skill sets, illustrating the breadth of “green jobs” that strengthen the Nation’s economy.
