Outdoor Recreational Trails Advisory Board recruiting new members

The Division of Parks and Outdoor Recreation is seeking multiple candidates to fill positions representing both motorized and non-motorized trail users on the Outdoor Recreational Trails Advisory Board (ORTAB). Applicants should have knowledge, experience, and interest in outdoor recreational activities and grant-funded programs.

The primary role of the ORTAB is to assist in evaluating grant proposals for the Recreational Trails Program and Land and Water Conservation Fund. Since 2000, these programs have invested over 30 million dollars in trail projects throughout the state, creating critical and sustainable infrastructure while supporting private sector jobs throughout Alaska. Because ORTAB members carry a wide array of trail and public land user experiences, they are occasionally asked for additional advice on other outdoor recreation related subjects. 

Anyone interested in serving on the ORTAB should submit a letter of interest, brief resume, and completed questionnaire to the State Trails Program Manager, Darcy Harris at The deadline to apply is August 1, 2018.

This is a Commissioner-appointed position with a three-year term, and the board meets a minimum of twice per year, at least once in person in Anchorage or as needed telephonically. Additional information regarding the ORTAB and the Recreational Trails Program can be found at
