Nominations sought for DNR’s Trails Advisory Board

News forwarded by the Indiana Conservation Alliance…

The Indiana Department of Natural Resources seeks nominations for five openings on the state’s Indiana Trails Advisory Board (TAB) for 2015.

Nominees must be involved with a trails-oriented organization that represents one of the following user groups: bicyclists, higher education/health, off-road motorcyclists, parks and recreation agencies, and water trail users.

Board members are expected to serve a three-year term starting March 1, 2015, and attend quarterly meetings. TAB meetings are held on the first Thursday of March, September and December, and on the last Thursday in June. All meetings start at 3 p.m. Locations vary throughout the state.

The 15-member voluntary TAB advises DNR director Cameron F. Clark on trails-related issues. Having a TAB is also required for the state to receive funding from the Recreational Trails Program (RTP) through the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Highway Administration. The state uses these funds to acquire and develop multi-use trails for both motorized and non-motorized use.

Nominations will be accepted by the DNR Division of Outdoor Recreation from Dec. 1, 2014 through Jan. 2, 2015.
