Outdoor Recreational Trails Advisory Board (ORTAB)

The primary purpose of the ORTAB is to advise the Director of the Division of Parks and Outdoor Recreation on project funding for eligible outdoor recreation projects under the Land and Water Conservation Fund Act and the National Recreation Trails Fund Act; to nominate, review and comment on trail and outdoor recreation projects during the public processes of the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) and other agencies; and to help the division advocate the economic, health and social benefits of state trails and recreation access.

The Commissioner of DNR selected eight (8) members to represent ORTAB statewide. Appointed members are carefully selected based on experience and knowledge of trails and recreational access, as well as statewide interest in recreation issues, while providing for statewide representation. To qualify for Federal grants, membership may include statewide representation from non-motorized and motorized users of trails, minorities, trail users with disabilities and other recreation users.
