ODFW seeks candidates for Fish Restoration and Enhancement Program Board

 
October 20, 2009

 

SALEM, Ore. — The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife is seeking qualified candidates to fill two open positions on the Fish Restoration and Enhancement Program Board. Available positions include one sport fishing representative and one public-at-large representative.

Board members, who are appointed to four-year terms by the Oregon Fish and Wildlife Commission, meet three or four times each year in various communities throughout the state to review project funding applications, hear public testimony, act as liaisons between the program and the public and to conduct other program business. Board members are volunteers; however, Board-related business expenses are reimbursed.

The application deadline is Nov. 20, 2009. Final appointments will be made by the Fish and Wildlife Commission in January 2010.

The Fish Restoration and Enhancement Program was created by the Oregon Legislature in 1989 and is funded by a surcharge on sport and commercial fishing licenses and commercial poundage fees. The program is overseen by a seven-member citizen board made up of three sport fishing representatives, three representatives from the troll, gillnet and seafood processing industries and one public-at-large representative. The Board reviews grant proposals from various organizations and agencies and recommends funding for fish restoration and enhancement projects throughout the state.

For more information or to obtain an application, contact Fish Restoration and Enhancement Program coordinator Laura Tesler at (503) 947-6259 or by e-mail.
