Montana Fish Wildlife and Parks is looking for a high-school student to help shape the future of conservation efforts around the state for years to come.

High school students are needed for the Future Fisheries citizen review panel.
A current high school student is needed to serve a two-year term on the Future Fisheries citizen review panel, according to Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks.

The Future Fisheries Improvement Program (FWP) awards over $1 million yearly in grants for initiatives aimed at enhancing and restoring Montana's wild fish habitats. The Fish & Wildlife Commission should support projects that the 14-member citizen review panel recommends, and the panel meets twice a year to consider ideas.

The governor, or another member of the state government designated by the governor, appoints the members of the review panel, who are required to represent a wide range of interests, including conservation districts, commercial agriculture, irrigated agriculture, silviculture, fisheries restoration, Montana anglers, members of the Montana House of Representatives and Senate, high school students, mining reclamation, fisheries, and one ex-officio member from the Montana Department of Transportation.

The commitment includes attending meetings in mid-June and mid-December twice a year and reviewing proposals. Although this is a volunteer position, travel and lodging expenses are covered.
