Hunter and Landowner Representative positions open on A&H Deschutes/Klamath Advisory Council
August 19, 2011

BEND, Ore.—ODFW is looking for people with experience in hunting and/or wildlife conservation to serve as a Hunter Representative or Landowner Representative on the Access and Habitat Program's Deschutes-Klamath Advisory Council.

Individuals living in central Oregon from The Dalles to Klamath/Lakeview area (Hood River, Western Sherman, Wasco, Jefferson, Crook, Deschutes, Klamath, and Lake counties) are eligible to apply.
Applications are available online and due at the Bend ODFW office by Sept. 16, 2011. For more information or for application materials by mail, contact Larry Pecenka at 541-633-1117.

This is a volunteer position and duties include participation in up to four public meetings per year to review A&H project proposals and conduct other council business. Meetings may require some travel to various northwestern 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 in 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 additional information on the A&H Program visit the program website at or contact Matt Keenan at (503) 947-6087.
