Arkansas Headwaters Recreation Area accepting nominations for Citizen Task Force

Colorado Parks and Wildlife
The Arkansas Headwaters Recreation Area (AHRA) is accepting nominations for its Citizen Task Force (CTF), a 16-member panel that advises Colorado Parks and Wildlife on management issues in the upper Arkansas River valley.

One delegate is needed to represent each of the following interest areas: anglers commercial permittees private boaters environmental interests water users county/municipal government organizations river-front property owners and outdoor recreation/other.

Self-nominations are accepted, but endorsement by AHRA partner organizations is encouraged. Nominations will be accepted through March 15.

The task force, created in 1990, makes recommendations to the AHRA on management, growth and development issues throughout the recreation area. It also provides an open communication link to parties affected by management decisions.

Volunteering for the Citizen Task Force is a great opportunity to get deeply involved in the mission of the AHRA. Hours spent working on the task force may be logged toward a free Volunteer Park Pass (issued after 48 hours of volunteer time are logged in a 12-month period).

Task force members serve two-year terms, which will run from April 2024 until April 2026. Members are expected to attend four or five meetings each year, which typically are scheduled from 10 a.m. until noon.

Information on the CTF nomination process and a nomination form can be obtained by visiting the AHRA website at You may also request more information or a nomination form by visiting the AHRA Visitor Center at 307 W. Sackett Ave., Salida. Or call the office at 719-539-7289.
