Salmon and Trout Advisory Committee seeks Umpqua representative

July 9, 2013

SALEM — The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife is seeking a new member to represent the Umpqua STEP District on the Salmon and Trout Enhancement Program (STEP) Advisory Committee. Interested individuals are encouraged to apply by Aug. 2, 2013.

Oregonians who are involved with local fishing or STEP groups, have previous experience working with volunteers and/or in community service, or are involved in natural resource or angling education are encouraged to apply. Candidates must be able to travel at least four times per year.

The ideal candidate will be a resident of the Umpqua District, or Douglas County area, which includes the communities of Reedsport, Elkton, Yoncalla, Sutherlin, Roseburg, Canyonville and Myrtle Creek. This area includes the entire Umpqua Basin from Diamond Lake in the Cascades west to the coast at Reedsport. Major stream basins include Cow and Calapooya Creek, and the North Fork, South Fork and mainstem Umpqua rivers.

The successful candidate will serve a four-year term, with the possibility of re-appointment for a total term of eight years.

STEP was created by the Oregon Legislature in 1981 to provide a way for volunteers to participate in the restoration of native stocks of salmon, steelhead and trout. Since then, thousands of volunteers have assisted Oregon's fisheries through their involvement in STEP, donating money, materials, equipment, and countless hours of time and labor.

The 13 members of the Advisory Committee are appointed by the Governor and represent all regions of Oregon. The committee meets quarterly in various communities throughout the state to conduct STEP business and advise ODFW and the Fish and Wildlife Commission on issues regarding STEP. Committee members are volunteers; however, business-related expenses are reimbursed.

For application materials, visit the “How to Apply” section on http://www.oregon.gov/gov/Pages/boards.aspx
