The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) in Northwest Colorado is looking for four new members to sit on the Resource Advisory Council.

The 15-person council advises the agency on land use. Anyone, from raft guides to ranchers, can apply.


Ideally, candidates are from different parts of the district, too, which is the northwest chunk of the state, stretching from Craig to Breckenridge.

Terms on the Resource Advisory Council are three years. It meets quarterly. Members can make formal recommendations on things like wild horse management and oil and gas permitting.  

The council also needs to approve any new recreation fee the BLM wants to implement.

Nominations must be submitted by June 14.
