Tanana Valley State Forest Citizens' Advisory Committee
The 12 member Citizens' Advisory Committee for the Tanana Valley State Forest advises the Division of Forestry on forest practices issues and provides a forum for the discussion and resolution of forest management issues in the Tanana Valley State Forest and on other forested state land in the Tanana Valley managed by the Department of Natural Resources. The State Forester appoints committee members who represent a range of interests for three-year terms. The Tanana Valley State Forest Management Plan established the Citizens' Advisory Committee. The committee meets several times a year, generally during the winter and early spring.
