Elk NetworkWant to Help Manage Wildlife in Utah?

General | March 19, 2019

If you are interested in Utah’s wildlife and how species are managed, several positions will soon be opening on the five Regional Advisory Councils (RAC) that share public feedback with the Utah Wildlife Board. You can apply for one of the available RAC positions.

Each RAC holds about six meetings a year. At the meetings, RAC members listen to proposals from Division of Wildlife Resources biologists about hunting, fishing and wildlife management in Utah. They also take input from the public about the proposals.

After voting on which proposals each RAC prefers, the chairperson for that RAC presents its recommendations to the Utah Wildlife Board. Members of the board consider the input, and then make the final decision regarding how wildlife is managed in Utah.
