Alaska State Parks is currently seeking new advisory board members to fill several positions. Each member’s term is three years, with an option to renew. Board members are recruited from the community at large to represent the various recreational, historical, and cultural resource interests in a balanced manner for the Division of Parks and Outdoor Recreation.
The Citizen Advisory Board members fulfill an important role of communication between Alaska State Parks and the community it serves. Most recently, the board considered issues such as the proposed Stampede State Recreation Area, the Mastodon Trail in Chena River State Recreation Area, and year-round maintenance of bathrooms at highway rest stops. This year the board issued letters of support for funding the Federal Recreation Trails Program, the Land and Water Conservation Fund, and capital improvement projects here in the Northern Area. Each fall the board hosts a legislative briefing for the Interior Legislative Delegation.
Board meetings are held September through May, on the second Wednesday of each month, at the Alaska Department of Natural Resources office in Fairbanks. The next board meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, April 13th. Members from outlying areas can attend meetings telephonically. The board welcomes the public to attend their monthly meetings.
Applications are available at the state parks office at 3700 Airport Way or online at www.alaskastateparks.org. For more information, contact the Park office at 451-2695.
