Application deadline extended for landowners to volunteer with ODFW’s Access and Habitat Program in southern Oregon

April 24, 2024

CENTRAL POINT, Ore – The application deadline to volunteer with ODFW’s Access and Habitat Program’s Southwest Region Council as a landowner representative is extended to May 28. People with interest and experience in forestry, agriculture, ranching, wildlife conservation, or hunting are encouraged to apply.

The Southwest region covers Douglas, Coos, Curry, Jackson, and Josephine counties and applicants should live or work in these counties.

The position is voluntary and appointed to a four-year term with the option to be reappointed by the A&H Board to a second term. Council members participate in up to four public meetings yearly in various communities in this region.

At the meetings, council members review and consider funding A&H project proposals and conduct other business. A&H projects open private land to hunting access or improve wildlife habitat for game animals.

Applications must be received by Tuesday, May 28 for review by the current Regional Council which meets May 31. 

The A&H Program is funded by a $4 surcharge on hunting licenses and the sale of deer and elk raffle entries and auction tags. Over the years, the program opened millions of acres of private land to hunting and improved game animal habitat. Find A&H properties available to hunt at http://oregonhuntingmap.com/#/map

For more information, contact Ryan Battleson, A&H Southwest Council Regional Coordinator at 541-857-2408.
