Apply by June 30 for Landowner Representative position on A&H South Willamette Regional Council

May 31, 2016

SALEM, Ore. – ODFW is looking for a Landowner Representative for the Access and Habitat Program’s South Willamette Regional Council. The application deadline is June 30, 2016.

Landowners and individuals living in the appropriate region (see map)with experience managing agricultural or forest properties and in interest hunting and wildlife conservation are encouraged to apply. Please contact Isaac Sanders at (503) 947-6087 or visit http://www.dfw.state.or.us/lands/AH/get_involved.asp for Regional Council application forms and more information.

The A&H program provides grants to individual and corporate landowners, conservation organizations, and others for wildlife habitat improvement and to increase hunter access throughout the state. It is funded by a $4 surcharge on hunting licenses and proceeds from annual big game auctions and raffles.

Six Regional Councils each comprised of seven volunteers — three landowner representatives, three hunter representatives, and Chair —review and recommend wildlife habitat improvement and hunting access projects from their region to the statewide Access and Habitat Board for consideration.

Council members, appointed to four-year terms by the Access and Habitat Board, meet periodically to review project funding applications, hear public testimony and act as liaisons between the program and the public.

More information on the A&H program http://www.dfw.state.or.us/lands/AH/
