Pacific Northwest Region Recreation Resource Advisory Committee

You are invited to bring your unique perspective to a citizen advisory committee!


The Pacific Northwest, perhaps more than any other region in the United States, is defined by its public lands

More than 30 percent of Washington and 53 percent of Oregon are managed by the federal government. In addition, a small area in Idaho falls within the management of Region 6 in the Hells Canyon National Recreation Area. These lands provide the people and communities within Idaho, Oregon and Washington their livelihood, recreation, visual backdrop, and identity. The agency is seeking a diverse group of nominees for a Regional for Recreation Resource Advisory Committee to reflect and represent your respective community needs and values. 

Recreation is the portal through which people connect to their national forestsThus, national forest recreation plays a key role in the social stability, environmental integrity, and economic vitality of these communities. Recreation fees help improve access to recreation sites and increase opportunities for enjoyment of public lands.  

To be effective, we need a committee that is representative of the diversity of our nation. We will look to members to communicate emerging issues and share technical and professional knowledge. This will allow us to increase collaborative work across boundaries and borders to optimize recreation benefits for all.
