SALT LAKE CITY — The state Department of Wildlife Resources has announced that there will soon be open positions on Utah's five wildlife Regional Advisory Councils
Each council holds about six meetings a year to listen to proposals from the DWR about wildlife management in Utah. The councils also take input from the public about the proposals.
After voting on proposals, a council representative presents its recommendations to the Utah Wildlife Board. Members of the board consider the input and make the final decision regarding wildlife management in Utah.
Those interested in filling the upcoming vacancies must live in the region they wish to represent. To represent the public at large, individuals must contact a group in the community — including political groups, town councils, animal sanctuary committees and recreational groups — and ask that group for a nomination.
To fill other positions on the council, individuals must contact a conservation group or organization in the region, such as a sportsmen's group, and ask for a nomination. Nominating groups and organizations must submit nominations by 5 p.m. on March 15.
