Resource Advisory Council needs members

— The Bureau of Land Management is seeking nominations for residents to serve on the Eastern Washington Resource Advisory Council.

Nominations being accepted for:

  • Five members representing holders of federal grazing permits, commercial energy and mineral development, the timber industry, transportation or rights-of-way, off highway vehicle use or commercial recreation.
  • Three members representing nationally or regionally recognized environmental organizations dispersed recreational activities, archaeological or historic interests, and wild horse and burro groups.

The council advises the bureau on public land issues.

All nominees must be state residents.

Individuals may nominate themselves or others.

Nominations will be accepted through July 21.

The council helps the bureau carry out its stewardship of public lands in the state.

“The advice given to the BLM by these citizen-based resource advisory councils is a vital part of the BLM’s collaborative approach to land management,” BLM Oregon/Washington State Director Jerry Perez said. “Citizen input enhances our agency’s ability to administer and conserve these lands for the use and enjoyment of current and future generations of Americans.”

Additional information is available at the Spokane District Office, by calling 509-536-1200 or here.
