Salmon and Trout Advisory Committee seeks North Coast representative

September 30, 2010


SALEM, Ore. — The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife is seeking qualified candidates to represent the North Coast on the Salmon and Trout Enhancement Program (STEP) Advisory Committee.

Oregonians that are involved with local fishing groups, have previous experience working with volunteers and/or in community service, and are able to travel at least four times per year are encouraged to apply. The ideal candidate should be a resident of the area extending from Cannon Beach north to Warrenton, and up the Columbia River to Westport including the communities of Cannon Beach, Seaside, Warrenton, Astoria and Vernonia.

The major stream basins in this area include the Klaskanine, Youngs, Lewis and Clark, Necanicum, and Nehalem rivers.

The successful candidate will start on or before Jan. 1, 2011 and 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 committee is comprised of 13 members representing all regions of Oregon. Members are appointed by the Governor and meet 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

This recruitment will remain open until filled, though candidates are encouraged to apply by October 29, 2010.
