Abstract: The Yukon-Kuskokwim (YK) Delta Berry Outlook is a data and observer driven ecological monitoring and modeling framework that forecasts changes in berry habitat and abundance with environmental change. To create a berry monitoring protocol and modeling framework we will solicit local knowledge of berry distribution and abundance from members of YK delta communities using a survey instrument. This survey is comprised of two parts, Part A and Part B. Part A consists of propositions that respondents are asked to agree or disagree with using a Likert scale. Propositions are on the subject of timing, abundance, and distribution of four types of berries prevalent in the region. Part B consists of questions concerning the abundance of that year’s berry harvest. Personally Identifiable Information (PII) will be limited to four elements: Names, phone numbers, emails, and the name of the village they reside in. This PII will be collected so that researchers may communicate project results and solicit feedback on the project itself for evaluation purposes. Statistical analysis will be performed on the survey responses in to ascertain if a consensus exists among participants within villages and among villages. The USGS mission is to serve the Nation by providing reliable scientific information to describe and understand PO 00000 Frm 00036 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 the Earth. This project will collect information from individuals to better understand the abundance, distribution, and variability of berry resources in the Yukon-Kuskokwim Delta region of Alaska. The people of the YK delta hold information about the long-term distribution and abundance of berries that is useful for understanding current and future changes to berry habitat that has the potential to impact wildlife populations of the Yukon Delta region and the Yukon Delta National Wildlife Refuge. Title of Collection: YukonKuskokwim Delta Berry Outlook. OMB Control Number: 1028–0122. Form Number: None. Type of Review: Revision of a currently approved collection. Respondents/Affected Public: Individuals residing in Alaska Native Villages. Total Estimated Number of Annual Respondents: 150. Total Estimated Number of Annual Responses: 150. Estimated Completion Time per Response: Twenty-five minutes. Total Estimated Number of Annual Burden Hours: 62.5 hours. Respondent’s Obligation: Voluntary. Frequency of Collection: Part A onetime; Part B annually for three years. Total Estimated Annual Non-hour Burden Cost: None. An agency may not conduct or sponsor and a person is not required to respond to a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number. The authorities for this action are the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501, et seq.). Pierre Glynn, Chief, Water Cycle Branch.
