Forest Advisory Board

Clackamas County Commissioners are recruiting for four community members to serve on their seven member Forest Advisory Board.  This board actively participates in providing technical guidance to the Forest Management program staff in forest management and harvest activities, timber land sales and purchases, and stand improvement activities, along with review of public input related to proposed activities.  

Applicants for the Forest Advisory Board must be residents of Clackamas County, and be Foresters or persons that have professional forestry experience in the forest industry, forest consulting or governmental employment, or have a professional forestry education, and should have working knowledge of the Oregon Forest Practices Act. 

In order to meet advisory board policy requirements for balance and representation, Commissioners are seeking applicants from diverse backgrounds including government, private industry, consulting forestry, forestry education and small woodland management. 

Meetings are held at 6 p.m. on a quarterly basis in the office of the Clackamas County Forest Management program at 150 Beavercreek Road, Oregon City, Oregon.
