Statewide trails advisory committee seeks to fill vacancies


The Oregon Parks and Recreation Department is seeking volunteers for two vacant positions on the Recreation Trails Program Advisory Committee.

Current vacancies:

Equestrian representative Water trail representative

The ten-member committee evaluates grant proposals for statewide trail projects. They meet once or twice a year at locations throughout the state. Time commitment varies and includes reviewing and evaluating 30-70 grant applications each annual funding cycle. Three-year terms begin Jan. 1, 2019. Members are eligible to serve a second term.

Ideal candidates can live anywhere in Oregon and will be avid equestrians or paddlers with experience in at least one of the following areas: land management, recreation planning, trail planning, project management, grant management, or volunteerism.

Those interested in serving must submit an OPRD grant advisory committee appointment interest form by Friday, Nov. 16. The form is available online:

The competitive grant program is funded by the U.S. Department of Transportation Federal Highway Administration and administered by OPRD. Grants are awarded to non-profits and governments for motorized and non-motorized trail projects, including building new trails, improving existing trails and developing or improving trail facilities.
