Phoenix- The Arizona State Parks Board is seeking motorized and non-motorized recreation enthusiasts and scientists from throughout Arizona to serve as volunteer advisors.

Currently, there are nine openings for three advisory boards including the Arizona State Committee On Trails (ASCOT), the Off-Highway Vehicle Advisory Group (OHVAG), and the Natural Areas Program Advisory Committee (NAPAC).  The Arizona State Parks Board will make appointments in November 2014 for positions beginning January 1, 2015.  Applications for all committees are available to download at AZStateParks.com

The Arizona State Committee on Trails (ASCOT) represents non-motorized trail interests and serves in an advisory capacity to the Arizona Outdoor Recreation Coordinating Commission  (AORCC) and the Arizona State Parks Board.  The overall mission of the Arizona Trails Program is to promote, develop, and preserve non-motorized trail opportunities throughout the state.  The Parks Board appoints ASCOT members to three-year terms and there are four openings.

The Off-Highway Advisory Group (OHVAG) serves in an advisory capacity to the Arizona State Parks Board representing statewide off-highway vehicle opportunities and developing education programs that promote resource protection, social responsibility, and interagency cooperation.  The Parks Board appoints members to three-year terms.  There are three openings.

The Natural Areas Program Advisory Committee (NAPAC) advises the Parks Board and staff on natural area related issues and provides scientific and natural resource management expertise to protect, conserve and maintain natural, biological, ecological, aquatic and terrestrial resources. The two openings on NAPAC will be filled with applicants who have experience in botany, ecology, hydrology, zoology, wildlife biology; or experience in the conservation and/or preserve management fields. The Parks Board appoints members to NAPAC for three-year terms.

The deadline for submitting an application for any of the listed advisory committees is 5 p.m., Monday, September 15, 2014. More information about each of the committees and an application can be found on the Arizona State Parks website at AZStateParks.com/committees or call Dawn Collins, Chief of Resources and Public Programs, at (602) 542-7128.
