The RAC is a committee of volunteers that advises the Six Rivers National Forest about the use of monies allocated through the Secure Rural Schools and Community Self –Determination Act Title II program. The committee was formed to encourage cooperation between the Forest Service and local communities about projects that provide mutual benefits to forest resources and communities. It consists of 15 county residents who represent a broad cross-section of the community.
Additional information about the Secure Rural Schools and Community Self–Determination Act Title II program is available at www.fs.fed.us/srs. For more information about the Del Norte County RAC program, contact Lynn Wright at (707) 441-3562 or email@example.com.
