The Council shall advise the Secretary with respect to the preparation and implementation of the management plan for the San Rafael Swell Recreation Area. Congress created the San Rafael Swell Recreation Area to provide for the protection, conservation, and enhancement of the recreational, cultural, natural, scenic, wildlife, ecological, historical, and educational Start Printed Page 51754resources of the area. Council duties and responsibilities are solely advisory in nature.
The Council is seeking nominations in the following categories:
(1) A representative of conservation organizations; and
(2) An elected leader of a federally recognized Tribe that has significant cultural or historical connections to, and expertise in, the landscape, archeological sites, or cultural sites within the County.
Members will be appointed to the Council to serve three-year staggered terms.
