Parks seek nominations to boat safety council

The Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission is seeking nominations to its Boating Safety Advisory Council.

The commission is looking for individuals to represent educators, anglers and hunters. Deadline for submitting nominations is Oct. 12.

The council assists and advises the commission on administration of its boating safety program, which provides information and education on safe and environmentally sound boating practices to agencies, organizations and individuals statewide.

The program also

works closely with local marine law enforcement agencies, and other boating safety educational organizations to assist their information, education and/or law enforcement efforts.

Council members may be reimbursed for travel and other expenses when attending council meetings. Typically, there are two to three meetings a year.

For an application or more information, call 360-902-8847 or e-mail to: james.horan@parks.wa.gov.
