ANCHORAGE — The Division of Parks and Outdoor Recreation is inviting interested individuals to apply to join the Snowmobile Trails Advisory Council. There are three vacancies on the 11-member board, one of the vacant positions represents the Kenai Peninsula, Valdez and Prince William Sound; and the other two represent the Anchorage area. The term for these positions will begin March 1 and expire Feb. 28, 2017.
SnowTRAC members assist the division director by providing a diverse and informed analysis of grant proposals and by making funding recommendations for the Snowmobile Trails Grant Program.
