FY19 NRM Annual Report
This report takes us on a journey through the past year highlighting the successes of our program and acknowledging the challenges we face. It is our hope that you are able to take a few minutes to read this document and feel pride in all that we have done to ensure the safety of our co-workers and visitors while advancing the conservation of our public lands. As noted in the "Message from the NRM Chief", every day we continue to be inspired by the dedication, resourcefulness, and innovativeness of the Natural Resource community. View Report

Ryan Braaten, NRM CAP (July - December 2016)
Being selected as the NRM CAP has been the highlight of my career thus far. I was hesitant to apply since I had just recently became a GS-09, but many encouraged me and said they had always regretted not putting in for it themselves. No regrets, so I applied and got selected for the second half of 2016. Starting off my journey to D.C. I was able to take a few days of leave and do a cross-country road trip with my wife starting in Oregon. We stopped at many National Parks along the way which helped me realize I would be representing rangers from around the country while at HQ and not just those at my dam. View full story
