FWP Seeking Members for Region 6 Citizen Advisory Committee


August 2, 2017

Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks is seeking applicants to fill two volunteer positions on the Region 6 Citizen Advisory Committee (CAC).

The CAC is a general advisory committee that provides input and guidance to FWP on a variety of issues—from wildlife and fisheries management to access, state parks, outdoor recreation and law enforcement.

“We look at the CAC as being a two-way street for providing and receiving information from the public,” said Mark Sullivan, Region 6 Supervisor. “We provide members with up-to-date information about the work FWP is doing, and we in turn rely on members to take that information back to their neighbors and aquaintances. In addition, we want feedback on what CAC members are hearing from their neck of the woods for us to do a better job managing resources for the public.”

Applicants must live in FWP Region 6, which includes the counties of Hill, Blaine, Phillips, Valley, Daniels, Sheridan, Roosevelt, and portions of McCone, Richland and Choteau Counties. The committee is designed to have a membership that represents a variety of northeast Montana communities and natural resource interests. FWP welcomes applications from hunters, anglers, landowners, nongame advocates, trappers, outfitters and guides, state parks and tourism advocates, campers and other outdoor recreationists, and anyone with an interest in natural resource issues.

“There is especially a need to fill positions from the western part of the Region, such as from Hill and Blaine counties, but all applications will be considered and kept on file for future openings,” said Sullivan.

The panel of twelve volunteers typically has three meetings a year, usually at the Fort Peck Fish Hatchery meeting room. Members may be appointed for up to two consecutive, three-year terms. Meals and travel expenses are provided.

Applicants will be asked to provide an overview of their interests and involvement in natural resource issues and write a few sentences on why they are interested in serving on the CAC.

To apply, contact FWP at 406-228-3704, email Marc Kloker at, or stop by the Region 6 office at 1 Airport Road, U.S. Highway 2 West in Glasgow. Completed applications must be received by Aug. 15, 2017. FWP personnel will then review applications and select the new members. Successful applicants will be invited to attend their first CAC meeting in Sept. 2017.
