Lassen National Forest News Release

Lassen National Forest continues its outreach for Lassen County Resource Advisory Committee Members

SUSANVILLE, Calif., August 6, 2020 – The Lassen National Forest (LNF) is seeking candidates to serve on the Lassen County Resource Advisory Committee (LCRAC). The committee's purpose is to improve the community and collaborative relationships among those interested in the work of national forests and to provide advice and recommendations to the Forest Service on projects funded under Title II of the Secure Rural Schools Act.  
The USDA charters the LCRAC and comprises 15 members representing a wide array of interests. Committee members must be residents of California, but do not have to reside in the counties containing national forests. They represent a wide array of National Forest interests organized into three categories, specified in Section 205 (d)(2) of the Act:
(A) Five persons who -- (i) represent organized labor or non-timber forest product harvester groups; (ii) represent developed outdoor recreation, off highway vehicle users, or commercial recreation activities; (iii) represent energy and mineral development interests; or commercial or recreational fishing interests; (iv) represent the commercial timber industry, or; (v) hold Federal grazing or other land use permits, or represent nonindustrial private forest land owners, within the area for which the committee is organized.
(B) Five persons who represent--(i) nationally recognized environmental organizations; (ii) regionally or locally recognized environmental organizations; (iii) dispersed recreational activities; (iv) archaeological and historical interests or; (v) nationally or regionally recognized wild horse and burro interest groups, wildlife or hunting organizations, or watershed associations.
(C) Five persons who--(i) hold State elected office (or a designee); (ii) hold county or local elected office; (iii) represent American Indian tribes within or adjacent to the area for which the committee is organized; (iv) are school officials or teachers, or; (v) represent the affected public at large.
“The Secure Rural Schools Act encourages collaboration on projects to benefit public lands and local communities,” said Deb, Bumpus, Forest Supervisor, LNF. “Even though we encourage applicants within each category, we are particularly interested in applicants within the B category, which is in need of additional members.  Examples of projects that are typically considered include enhancing wildlife habitats, maintaining existing recreational developments, and improving roads for user access and benefiting water quality.”
For further information or questions, contact Mark Gaston, Public Affairs Officer at (530) 310-3504 Interested applicants can apply for LCRAC membership by completing an interest form, and mailing it to Mark Gaston, 2550 Riverside Drive, Susanville, CA 96130. Download the interest form/application at Committee members are not paid positions. Individuals may nominate themselves or others. Nominations and applications are due September 11, 2020
