Salmon recovery leaders needed

OLYMPIA – The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) is seeking citizens interested in salmon recovery to serve on a board that oversees the state’s Regional Fisheries Enhancement Group (RFEG) program.

The RFEG program was created in 1990 by the Washington State Legislature to involve local communities, citizen volunteers, and landowners in the state’s salmon recovery efforts. The current 14 groups – 11 in western Washington, three in eastern Washington – are dedicated to restoring salmon and steelhead populations by working with state and federal agencies, Native American tribes, local businesses and landowners.

One volunteer board position representing commercial fishing is currently open on the nine-member advisory board. The board meets quarterly throughout the state to review and approve projects for salmon recovery proposed by the RFEGs. Board members do not receive direct compensation for their work, but travel reimbursement and per diem expenses are available.

The three-year term begins when filled and expires December 31, 2010.

Interested persons should submit a letter of interest and a resume by August 10 to: Dianne Ludwig, Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife, Regional Fisheries Enhancement Group Program, 600 Capitol Way North, Olympia, Washington 98501-1091.
