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>

Our 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” has never held more significance. Partnerships, collaboration and the willingness to work together for a common purpose are incredibly important to this community.
Again this year we are initiating an annual donation drive in order to support four areas of need within our organization and the community. We are seeking funding for our beaver management program, restoration efforts, our irrigation efficiency program and for our general fund, which supports staff time for writing grants and working with landowners interested in voluntary projects.
The Klamath Watershed Partnership is a 501(c)3 non-profit and all donations are tax deductible. Click here for more information on our accomplishments for 2015.
