ODFW is currently accepting applications for the Chair and a Hunter Representative opening on the statewide Access and Habitat Board. The deadline to apply for both positions is Friday, Oct.14.

People with an interest and experience in hunting and wildlife conservation are encouraged to apply. Please contact Isaac Sanders at 503-947-6087 or visit http://tinyurl.com/hkkdwky for application forms and more information.

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.

The Board is made up of seven volunteers — three landowner representatives, three hunter representatives, and the Chair — who review and recommend wildlife habitat improvement and hunting access projects to the Oregon Fish and Wildlife Commission.

Board members, who are appointed to four-year terms by the Oregon Fish and Wildlife Commission, 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.
