DNR looking for citizens to provide game and fish oversight

Minnesotans who would like to serve on committees that review how the Department of Natural Resources spends Game and Fish Fund dollars are encouraged to submit an application by Sept. 30.

The DNR is seeking at least 12 people to serve on the Fisheries Oversight and Wildlife Oversight committees. Appointees will be responsible for reviewing the agencys annual Game and Fish Fund Report in detail and, following discussions with agency leaders and others, write a report on the findings of this review. About half of the current members terms expire on Dec. 14 and are subject to this open application.

The two committees are comprised of members identified through a self-nomination process. Those who want to serve on the committees should have a strong interest in natural resource management and how it is funded. DNR Commissioner Tom Landwehr will appoint committee members for three-year terms. Applications are being accepted online at www.dnr.state.mn.us/gamefishoversight/index.html.
