Jan. 10, 2022

SALEM, Ore. – The Oregon Conservation and Recreation Advisory Committee has three vacancies and seeks new members to represent two ecoregions: Blue Mountains and Columbia Plateau and the Northern Basin and Range as well as one at-large position.

Interested applicants can find more information here on how to apply:

"Serving on the Oregon Conservation and Recreation Advisory Committee has been a wonderful experience for me, and I believe we are having a significant and positive impact on issues that are important to all Oregonians," said Dr. Karl Wenner, Klamath Mountains ecoregion representative and Committee Chairperson. "It is critical that we continue to have representation from around the entire state and I would encourage anyone with an interest in these issues to apply to our open positions," added Wenner.

To represent an ecoregion, the member shall live in and possess demonstrable scientific expertise related to the ecoregion. Preference will also be given to applicants who possess experience engaging youth, underserved communities, and diverse audiences, such as communities of color, tribes, and low-income communities, in conservation and recreation activities. Consideration will also be given to members with interests in the economic, social, and educational benefits of healthy ecosystems.
