I have recently moved from the Cornell Laboratory of Ornithology to this
new (4 year old) program in the National Park Service
(; yes, the website needs work).

The Natural Sounds Program (previously the Soundscape Program) works to
protect, maintain, or restore soundscape resources and values in units of
the National Park System. A major research and development initiative is
the development of a national network of acoustic monitoring systems. The
dominant policy matters involve managing noise from vehicles, especially
air tour overflights, over snow vehicles, and off road vehicles. These new
staff will formally be Colorado State University employees, working with 
the National Park Service through a CESU agreement. Please post this
information where suitable applicants may see it. Thanks - Kurt
