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>

Did you know the Klamath Basin is located in the Pacific Flyway? Well it ls! The Pacific Flyway is a major north-south route of travel for migratory birds in Amerca, extending from Alaska to Patagonia. Every year, migratory birds travel some or all of this distance both in spring and in fall, following food sources, heading to breeding grounds, or travelling to over wintering sites. The Klamath Basin is a bird lovers paradise as over 350 species of birds call this major Pacific Flyway layover home!

To celebrate, the 15th Annual Klamath Falls International Migratory Bird Day (IMBD) Festival will be held on Saturday, May 10, 2014 from 9:00 am - 2:00 pm at Veterans Park. The theme for this year's festival is "Why Birds Matter." This is a FREE family fun event with great education and outreach opportunities, with hands-on activities and displays.
