The Indiana DNR is calling on equestrians, snowmobilers and other recreational trail users to consider serving their state on the Trails Advisory Board (TAB).
The 15-member TAB advises DNR director Robert E. Carter Jr. on trails-related issues. Having a TAB is also a requirement for states to receive funding from the Recreational Trails Program through the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Highway Administration. The state uses these funds to acquire and develop multi-use trails for both motorized and non-motorized use.
The TAB has five openings this year. Volunteers are expected to serve a three-year term and must be involved with a trails-oriented organization that represents one of the following trails-user groups.
- All-terrain vehicle users
- Four-wheel drive users
- Snowmobile users
Nominations and letters of support indicating why a nominee best represents a particular trails-interest group will be accepted by the DNR Division of Outdoor Recreation until Jan. 7, 2013.
To receive nomination instructions or learn more about the board, see dnr.IN.gov/outdoor/4094.htm.
Interested parties can also obtain the instructions and additional information by contacting David Cox at (317) 232-4067, dcox@dnr.IN.gov; or by mail or in person at DNR Outdoor Recreation, 402 W. Washington St. Room W271, Indianapolis, IN 46204-2782.
