Boulder County Parks and Open Space (BCPOS) is seeking qualifications from consulting firms for vegetation monitoring and vegetation mapping services. The County is seeking qualified contractors to retain for future projects of the discipline as described in the Specifications section.

Selected consulting firms must have experience in completing Line Point Intercept vegetation monitoring, and vegetation mapping using the United States National Vegetation Classification (USNVC) System. Qualifying firms must have the ability to identify species to specific epithet, including plants at vegetative or early basal life stages. The vegetation mapping requires identification of plant communities to the association level and field verification of the designation.

The vegetation mapping also requires identification of the dominant species by structural level, including tree, shrub, subshrub, gram, and forb. All field data for both the monitoring and mapping must be submitted to the County along with final reports and final GIS data based upon the County’s requirements for individual projects awarded.
