(Soldotna, AK) – Applications are currently being accepted for positions on five state park advisory boards in Southcentral Alaska.
Seats are currently available on the Kenai River Special Management Area, Southern Kenai Peninsula, Kachemak Bay State Park, Valdez, and Seward state park advisory boards.
State park advisory boards are the primary tool that state park officials use to involve the public in the management of state parks.
“Public involvement in state park management is important and the state park advisory boards help park managers respond to community needs,” said Jack Blackwell, superintendent for the Kenai Peninsula and Prince William Sound state parks. “Park advisory boards improve communication with Alaskans and give the public an opportunity to bring forward concerns and issues. Park advisory boards help us understand community priorities and enable us to work together on these issues.”
To apply for a position on one of these advisory boards, go to www.alaskastateparks.org. Applications are being accepted through Oct. 31.
