ODFW is seeking applicants for the North Willamette territory of the Salmon and Trout Enhancement Program (STEP) Advisory Committee. Interested individuals should apply by Aug.24, 2018. For application materials, visit the “How to Apply” section.

Oregonians that are involved with local fishing or STEP groups, have previous experience working with volunteers and/or in community service, or are involved in natural resource or fishing education are encouraged to apply. Candidates that are able to connect with or represent young adults, women, families, diverse populations, or underrepresented populations are strongly encouraged to apply.

The ideal candidate will be a resident of the Northern Willamette Valley including the Portland Metropolitan area and surrounding communities located in Multnomah, Clackamas, Washington, Yamhill Counties as well as eastern Columbia County, northern Polk and Marion Counties, and western Hood River County. This area includes the Clatskanie, Tualatin, Yamhill, Molalla/Pudding, Clackamas, Sandy and lower Willamette River Basins.

The successful candidate will serve a four-year term, with the possibility of re-appointment for a total term of eight years.

STEP was created by the Oregon Legislature in 1981 to provide a way for volunteers to participate in the restoration of native stocks of salmon, steelhead and trout. Since then, thousands of volunteers have assisted Oregon's fisheries through their involvement in STEP, donating money, materials, equipment, and countless hours of time and labor. ODFW provides opportunities for all Oregonians to be involved with STEP.

The 13 members of the Advisory Committee are appointed by the Governor and represent all regions of Oregon. The committee meets quarterly in various communities throughout the state to conduct STEP business and advise ODFW and the Fish and Wildlife Commission on issues regarding STEP. Committee members are volunteers; however, business-related expenses are reimbursed.
