The United States Department of Agriculture’s Pacific Southwest Region of the Forest Service is seeking nominations to fill the 11-member Recreation Resource Advisory Committee in California. Recreation RAC members provide recommendations to the agency on recreation fee changes at national forest sites throughout the state of California.

This includes making recreation fee program recommendations on implementing or eliminating standard amenity fees; expanded amenity fees; and noncommercial, individual special recreation permit fees; expanding or limiting the recreation fee program; and fee-level changes.

Nominations are now being accepted through Aug. 1.

Committee membership will be fairly balanced in terms of the point of view represented and functions to be performed. The committee’s jurisdiction includes national forests

and/or BLM managed lands in the state of California.

They receive travel and per diem expenses for regularly scheduled meetings, but do not receive pay or other compensation.

Membership appointments are based on the following criteria:

• Qualifications to represent the desired interest group

• Rationale for committee service and desired contributions

• Experience working successfully as part of a collaborative group
