Help: Volunteer on marine committee
The Snohomish County Marine Resources Advisory Committee is looking for at least four motivated volunteers to serve on an advisory committee that addresses local marine issues and recommends action to Snohomish County Executive Aaron Reardon and the County Council.
Applicants don’t need to be experts in marine management issues but should be willing to learn about marine conservation, participate in research founded on sound science, and contribute opinions on marine issues during a term that runs through 2012.
The committee meets in Everett the third Wednesday of every month from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Members volunteer at least 15 hours per month. Snohomish County residents, members of local government, organizations and environmental groups are encouraged to apply. Special consideration will be given to people who can advise on the development of proposed marine stewardship areas and can participate in project planning and implementation.
