January 15 is the deadline to submit applications for the Ravalli County Resource Advisory Committee, also known as RAC.

The committee sifts through and recommend projects that benefit Bitterroot National Forest land and ecosystems throughout Ravalli County. The committee has 18 members, each serving a 4-year term. It’s a volunteer organization.

Stevensville District Ranger Dan Ritter, in a press release, said, “We’re encouraging people with energy and commitment to get their applications to us by January 15th.”

The RAC meets once a month at the Bitterroot Forest Supervisor’s Office in Hamilton. The makeup of the panel is diverse by design, to provide expertise in all different interest areas in the community.

Tod McKay of the Bitterroot National Forest said the committee has approved about $1.6 million in project funding since 2001.

To apply to be on the committee, get an application at any Bitterroot National Forest office or online.
