Klamath Watershed Partnership Mission
To conserve, enhance and restore the natural resources of the Klamath Basin, while ensuring the long-term sustainability of the regional economy and local communities.
Who is the Klamath Watershed Partnership?
The Partnership is a community-based organization that provides watershed education and restoration in the Upper Klamath Basin. A diverse Board of Directors includes members of the Tribal, agricultural and conservation communities, as well as representatives of eight local working groups. Together they help direct the activities of the Partnership in ways that sustain, not only the ecosystem, but also local economies.
The Partnership is involved from start to finish in a wide range of large and small voluntary restoration projects throughout the Basin. The project begins when a landowner contacts the Partnership with an interest in restoration work, such as riparian fencing to help reduce stream bank erosion, screening diversions, or a new irrigation system that uses water and power more efficiently. Staff from the Partnership then works closely with them to design a project that fits with their values and also pencils out economically for them. Learn More>

1) Are stream restoration proejcts in the basin meeting their success criteria?
2) Are stream restoration projects in the basin collectively supporting achievement of basin-wide stream restoration goals?
This report is the result of the coordinaed efforts of a large team committed to improving stream restoration practicies in the Upper Klamath Basin:
