An Olympic National Forest advisory committee that works on land management projects is looking for volunteers.

Interested residents can apply to fill vacancies on the Olympic Peninsula Resource Advisory Committee — a 15-member group that reviews land projects near or adjacent to the Olympic National Forest.

Volunteers must be Washington residents, preferably living in one of the Olympic Peninsula counties, according to a U.S. Department of Agriculture release. Residents are not paid for their four-year terms, but are reimbursed for travel expenses.

Meetings take place four times each year within Mason, Thurston, Jefferson, Clallam or Grays Harbor counties.

Members represent one of three categories, which range from organized labor and commercial timber to environmental organizations and schools or teachers.

To apply, go to and download an application. Completed forms can be submitted in person or by mail: Olympic National Forest, Attn: Susan Piper, 1835 Black Lake Blvd. SW, Olympia, WA 98512.

The deadline for applications is Aug. 15.

For more information, call 956-2435.
