Fish and Wildlife Commission ADA Advisory Committee
In 2001, the Legislature directed the Fish and Wildlife Commission to appoint seven volunteers with disabilities to serve on an advisory committee as a pilot program. This Americans with Disabilities Act Advisory Committee (ADAAC) has been extended to the present, pursuant to RCW 77.04.150.
The ADAAC to the Fish and Wildlife Commission consists of Washington residents with disabilities representing each region with one appointed from at-large. This committee works closely with the Department to review, enhance, and create more recreational opportunities.
The Advisory Committee represents the interests of disabled hunters, fishers, and wildlife viewers on matters such as special hunts, modified sporting equipment, access to public land, and hunting and fishing opportunities for persons with disabilities. Learn more >>>
The Advisory Committee will provide accurate and meaningful information to the Washington Fish and Wildlife Commission regarding the needs of persons with disabilities as they seek to enjoy equal opportunity to access all the programs provided by the Department of Fish and Wildlife.
