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>

Interested in Becoming a Partner of the Great Outdoors Alliance?
The Great Outdoor Alliance (GOA) was formed in 2013 to meet the needs of outdoor education in the Klamath Basin.
The AGO seeks to empower all Americans - citizens, young people, and representatives of community groups; the private sector; nonprofit organizations; and local, state, and tribal governments - to share in the responsibility to conserve, restore, and provide better access to our lands and waters in order to leave a healthy, vibrant oudoor legacy for generations yet to come.
The mission is to foster partnerships that support connecting people to the land through recreation, education and outreach. Our vision is that all citizens have the opportunity to recreate in the outdoors and learn about their environment thereby creating healthy, informed and engaged communities.
