Applicants sought for state park citizen advisory board vacancies

The boards usually meet once a month from September through May.

The Kenai Peninsula/Prince William Sound Region of the Department of Natural Resources is looking for applicants to fill vacancies on two citizen advisory boards for areas of environmental importance on the peninsula.

Both citizen advisory boards for the Kenai River Special Management Area and Kachemak Bay State Park currently have vacancies, according to a DNR press release. These boards make management recommendations to state park managers and to better serve the parks in each region.

The boards usually meet once a month from September through May, according to the press release. The new members being sought will serve three-year terms from July 2021 to June 2024. Applications are due March 31.
