Volunteers needed for forests
The U.S. Forest Service needs volunteers from across the state to fill vacancies on the Francis Marion and Sumter National Forests’ Resource Advisory Committee, which oversees spending of Title II funds under the Secure Rural Schools Act in Berkeley, Newberry or Union counties.
The FMS RAC works closely with the U.S. Forest Service and county officials to recommend projects that will benefit forest health, fish, wildlife, soils, watersheds and other resources; maintain roads, trails and other infrastructure; or control noxious weeds.
The application form AD-755 is available at www.fs.usda.gov/goto/scnfs/AD755/.
Interested candidates must submit their application by Feb. 28, 2014 to: Francis Marion and Sumter National Forests, Attn: FMS RAC, 4931 Broad River Road, Columbia, SC 29212.
