Resource Advisory Committees

The Recreation Enhancement Act (REA) authorizes the Forest Service to establish, modify, charge, and retain recreation fees at Federal recreation lands and waters. The Act requires that citizen advisory committees, called Recreation Resource Advisory Committees (RACs), be formed to help ensure that the public is aware of and engaged in the recreation fee proposal process.  

How long does a RAC member serve? 

The Secretary of Agriculture must appoint members to a Recreation RAC for staggered terms of 2 or 3 years beginning on the date the member is first appointed. Members may be reappointed to subsequent 3-year terms. Vacancies should be filled as soon as practicable after they occur.
