DNR accepting apps to fill Equine Trails Subcommittee vacancy

August 25, 2014

The Department of Natural Resources today announced that applications are being accepted for appointment to the Equine Trails Subcommittee. Applications will be accepted through Sept. 25, 2014, and final appointment will be made by DNR Director Keith Creagh.

The Equine Trails Subcommittee was created in 2010 as a subcommittee to advise the Michigan Trails Advisory Council on the development and use of pack and saddle trails; matters related to the promotion of the state’s equine industry; and funding to conduct reviews, preservation and development of new pack and saddle trails in Michigan.

The Michigan Trails Advisory Council was formed to advise the DNR director and the governor on the creation, development, linking, operation and maintenance of motorized and nonmotorized trail networks in Michigan. The council completed the 2013 Michigan Comprehensive Trail Plan and the DNR completed the 2014 State Trails Implementation Plan to establish state trail goals and priorities for the next five years.

Those members of the equine trail riding community who are interested in consideration for appointment to the Equine Trails Subcommittee to fulfill the three-and-one-half-year term may be considered by submitting a letter of interest and brief resume to Jim Radabaugh, DNR state trails coordinator, at [email protected].
