ODFW Access and Habitat Program seeks volunteers to serve on Northeast Region Advisory Council
 
February 14, 2011

 

LA GRANDE, Ore.— ODFW is seeking two Landowner Representatives to serve on the Access and Habitat Program's Northeast Regional Advisory Council.

Ideal candidates own land or represent landowners and have interest and experience in hunting, forestry, farming, ranching and/or wildlife conservation. Applications must be received by March 1, 2011. Download a Phttp://www.dfw.state.or.us/lands/AH/Christina Schmidt at 503-947-6317 for one.

Duties of advisory council members include participation in about four public meetings per year to review A&H project proposals and conduct other council business. Meetings may require some travel to various northeast Oregon communities.

Applicants should be willing and able to work collaboratively with landowners, sportsmen's groups, ODFW staff, and representatives of other government agencies to facilitate the A&H Program.

Created by the Oregon Legislature in 1993, the A&H Program is funded primarily by a $4 surcharge on hunting licenses. Funds raised by the program are distributed through grants awarded to individual and corporate landowners, conservation organizations, and others, to cooperatively fund wildlife habitat improvement and hunter access projects throughout the state.

There are six regional A&H advisory councils within Oregon that serve as the initial review body for A&H grant proposals submitted within their region. The state A&H Board provides the next level of review, taking into account the advisory council’s recommendations. Approved projects are then forwarded to the Oregon Fish and Wildlife Commission for final review and funding approval. Each advisory council is composed of seven members, including three Landowner Representatives, three Hunter Representatives, and one public-at-large representative, who also serves as the Council Chair.

For information on applying for this position, please contact the Northeast Regional Access and Habitat Program Coordinator Jon Paustian at(541) 962-1838 / jon.a.paustian@state.or.us or visit http://www.dfw.state.or.us/lands/AH//
