Applications wanted for National Parks advisory group
The NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service is looking for people to join its Hunter Central Coast Regional Advisory Committee.
The committee provides input into how the region's national parks are managed.
National Parks executive director Mr Rob Smith said the opportunity to become a committee member came around every four years and was a unique opportunity for those passionate about our environment and heritage.
"We are looking for people with experience in a broad range of areas, including conservation, heritage, agriculture, ecotourism, environmental education and science," said Mr Smith.
"We are particularly keen to receive applications from a wide range of people with different backgrounds and life experiences.
"Applications from women, persons with a disability, young people, people from different cultural backgrounds and even first-time park visitors are encouraged.
"While there are no essential criteria for those wishing to nominate, it is expected that applicants have a strong connection to the national parks in their region."
Successful applicants will be appointed by the NSW Minister for Environment and Heritage for up to four years, commencing July 1.
