UPDATE OCT. 18: The application period for the Landowner Representative has been extended until Nov. 13, 2017.

Apply by Oct. 9 for position on Access and Habitat Program Board

Monday, September 18, 2017

SALEM, Ore. – ODFW is currently accepting applications for two positions on the statewide board for the Access and Habitat Program: Hunter Representative and Landowner Representative.

 Apply by Monday, Oct. 9, 2017 using the Board Application document on the Access and Habitat Get Involved webpage to be considered.

All positions are volunteer. People with an interest and experience in forestry, agriculture or ranching, and hunting and wildlife conservation are encouraged to apply. Applicants should be willing and able to work collaboratively with landowners, sportsmen’s groups, ODFW staff and other government agencies to facilitate the A&H Program.

Statewide board members are appointed to four-year terms by the Fish and Wildlife Commission and meet four times each year in various communities throughout the state to review project funding applications, hear public testimony and act as liaisons between the program and the public. The seven member Board — three landowner representatives, three hunter representatives, and the Chair — review and recommend wildlife habitat improvement and hunting access projects to the Commission.

The Access and Habitat Program is funded by a $4 surcharge on hunting licenses. Funds are distributed through grants to individual and corporate landowners, conservation organizations, and others for wildlife habitat improvement and projects to provide hunter access throughout the state.

Please contact Isaac Sanders at (503) 947-6087 or visit for application forms and more information.
