Colorado Wildlife Council Looking to Fill the East Slope Angler Representative position
5/20/2020

Colorado Wildlife Council
VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITY:
Wildlife Council East Slope Angler Representative

Hunting and fishing boost Colorado’s local economies, support wildlife through the funding of wildlife management, and have long been part of our state’s outdoor heritage. Colorado Wildlife Council members, working closely with an advertising firm, help guide an educational campaign to promote these messages. Successes include the Hug a Hunter and Hug an Angler campaigns and, most recent This is the Wild Life.

Council members contribute their professional expertise on a volunteer basis, attend 6-8 in-person meetings per year, provide input between meetings via conference calls and represent the Council and its mission. Council members have a strong interest in communicating the benefits of wildlife, wildlife management, and hunting and fishing to the general public. These are unpaid positions, but Council members are reimbursed for travel expenses.

The East Slope Angler Representative must (1) be a Colorado Resident and (2) purchase a fishing license on a regular basis in Colorado.

Please complete and submit the on-line application by June 15, 2020. Applications must include a letter of recommendation from a organized sportspersons group with either regional or national membership.

Background: The Council was conceived and developed by a coalition of hunters, anglers and conservationists working together with livestock and agriculture organizations, and created by the Colorado legislature in 1998. By statute, its mission is to oversee the design of a comprehensive media-based public information program to educate the general public about the benefits of wildlife, wildlife management, and wildlife-related recreational opportunities in Colorado, specifically hunting and fishing. The Council budget is appropriated through the Wildlife Management Public Education Fund. This fund is generated through a $1.50 surcharge on every Colorado hunting and fishing license.

If you have any questions regarding the application process, please contact the Council at dnr_wildlife.council@state.co.us .

Thank you for your interest in the Colorado Wildlife Council.
