Big Bear, Ca July 13, 2011 12:00 pm – In Big Bear, all residents and visitors are stakeholders in the health and vitality of the fish and wildlife in the Valley. Much of the allure of our resort community is the abundant fishing and the chance to see eagles and other wildlife. Big Bear and other California residents have an opportunity to serve as advisors to the state Fish and Wildlife Strategic Vision Committees and to participate in making policies about our resources, however they must apply before the end of the day today. The Strategic Vision Advisory Group will include representatives of a wide range of organizations involved in creating a joint vision for the state’s fish and wildlife resources. The group’s main purpose is to coordinate and identify spokespersons for interested groups in order to include them in the Strategic Vision process. Those interested in applying can access the application online at http://www.vision.ca.gov/stakeholder_advisory.html.
