The RAC oversees funding that is authorized by Congress under the Secure Rural Schools Act and under Title II of the Act, returns monies for certain counties to accomplish resource-based project work on National Forest System lands.
The GMUG RAC has been operating for the past four years and to date, has recommended over 19 projects totaling about $1 million dollars for restoration and improvement projects. Some of these include relocating trails out of riparian areas road improvements to support water quality noxious/invasive weed treatments and replacing/resizing culverts to prevent over flow and establish fish passage.
Twelve members of the RAC have elected to renew their appointments however, the GMUG RAC is in need of three additional members, and three alternate members who are willing to replace any members should they become unable to continue serving in the future.
According to Deputy Forest Supervisor Russ Bacon, “We are looking for people who want to contribute their time and energy to better the Forest and who enjoy working with other people.”
The RAC is composed of a wide representation of interests including forest users, industry, environmental, Tribal, educational, county representatives and more. Members are not compensated for their time however, travel expenses may be reimbursed. All RAC members must be residents of Colorado.
