Landowner representative needed on Access and Habitat Board
The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife is looking for a landowner representative to serve on the statewide Access and Habitat Board.
Interested persons should apply using the statewide board application. Send the application to Oregon Department of Forestry, ATTN: Peter Daugherty, State Forester, 2600 State Street, Salem, OR 97301 by March 1.
The applicant should have experience in forestry, ODFW said, but does not need to own land to qualify.
The selected person will be working collaboratively with landowners, sportsmen's groups, ODFW staff and other government agencies to facilitate the A and H Program, which provides grants to improve wildlife habitat or open private land to hunter access.
The board meets about four times each year in various communities to review project funding applications, hear public testimony and act as liaisons between the program and the public, ODFW said.
The board is made up of seven volunteers—three landowner representatives, three hunter representatives and the chair. Members are eligible for two consecutive four-year terms.
