Friday, May 26, 2000Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks is seeking volunteers to serve on its Wetland Protection Advisory Council. The council, established by the 1985 Legislature, reviews and selects wetland protection and restoration projects for funding. Projects will be submitted quarterly as part of FWP's wetland protection effort. Funding for this program is generated by the sale of migratory bird stamps and related artwork.
Individuals selected to serve on the Wetland Protection Advisory council will meet quarterly for one day per quarter and may serve staggered terms of one, two or three years.
Those interested in applying should submit a letter of application by June 1 describing their interest and involvement in wetlands, birds and other wildlife issues, their involvement in hunting and agriculture, if any, or any other items of interest which would help the selection committee make a decision.
Letters should be mailed to Tom Hinz; Migratory Bird/Wetland Coordinator; Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks; P.O. Box 200701; Helena, MT 59620-0701. Appointments based on the selection committee's recommendations will be made by FWP Director Pat Graham in July.
