New openings on ABC: Forest Advisory Board

Clackamas County Commissioners are seeking interested residents to serve on county Advisory Boards and Commissions (ABCs). These ABCs offer residents the opportunity to become very involved in specific activities and the goals of Clackamas County.

New ABC openings from the past week include:

  • Forest Advisory Board: This board has three vacancies, each of which serves a three-year term. Members actively participate in providing technical guidance to Forest Management program staff in forest management and harvest activities, timber land sales and purchases, and stand improvement activities, along with a review of public input related to proposed activities. Applicants for this board must be residents of the county and foresters or persons that have professional forestry experience in the forest industry, forest consulting or governmental employment, or have a professional forestry education, and should have working knowledge of the Oregon Forest Practices Act. In order to meet advisory board policy requirements for balance and representation, commissioners are seeking applicants from diverse backgrounds including government, private industry, consulting forestry, forestry education and small woodland management. Meetings are on a quarterly basis.

    The deadline for applications is Dec. 29. For more information, contact Christina Dannenbring at 503-742-4663 or cdannenbring@clackamas.us.

Individuals interested in these opportunities can apply online or via a paper form that can be obtained from the Public & Government Affairs Department by calling 503-655-8751 or in person at the Public Services Building at 2051 Kaen Road in Oregon City.
