Colorado Parks and Wildlife is looking for volunteers to serve on a new statewide advisory panel that will provide feedback for the agency on hunting, fishing and wildlife management issues in Colorado.
The Colorado Sportsmen’s Roundtable will meet twice a year to discuss issues and help the agency understand the views and ideas of Colorado’s hunters and anglers. The agency hopes the group will provide a forum for identifying important issues and working with sportsmen to help protect fish, wildlife and habitat as well as preserving Colorado’s hunting heritage.
“Hunters and anglers are the champions of wildlife conservation in Colorado,” said Rick Cables, director of Colorado Parks and Wildlife. “We want their advice and ideas as we tackle the issues facing our state.”
Individuals interested in serving on the Colorado Sportsmen’s Roundtable can complete a short online application to describe their involvement in hunting and fishing and their interest in representing their fellow hunters and anglers. The application can be completed at http://wildlife.state.co.us/Hunting/Pages/Roundtable.aspx.
Sixteen individuals will be chosen to serve one- or two-year terms on the Roundtable. The deadline for applying is Friday, Feb. 15.
The first meeting of the group will occur in late March. The group will also include individuals selected at regional “caucus” meetings to occur over the next few months around the state.
