OUTREACH AND TECHNICAL ASSISTANCE
KWP conducts outreach and education around the basin on a variety of topics. This outreach is often targeted to individual landowners with the goal of implementing projects that will work for them while also enhancing watershed health. KWP and partners also participate in outreach events for larger audiences that provide guidance on issues in the basin from drought resilience to integrated pest management. Listed below are some of our current and past outreach efforts.
KWP currently supports private land weed treatments in 3 focus areas in partnership with Klamath County. Please click on your location to download information and sign-up forms: Lost River Watershed, Sprague River Watershed, Keno/Klamath River area.
UPPER KLAMATH BASIN WATERSHED ACTION PLAN
KWP continues to work with a group of conservation organizations to address large-scale planning in the Upper Klamath Basin. This partnership of Klamath Basin entities is known as the Upper Klamath Basin Watershed Action Plan Team (UKBWAP Team). The UKBWAP Team is committed to supporting voluntary restoration actions on private lands, while assisting farmers and ranchers who must contend with concerns of water quality and water availability. The Upper Klamath Watershed Action Plan and the interactive reach priority tool help land managers prioritize restoration work where it can have the greatest impact.
UPPER KLAMATH BASIN PRODUCER LISTENING SERIES
KWP participates in the Upper Klamath Basin producer listening series coordinated by Sustainable Northwest. This series brings agricultural producers, government agencies, and non- government organizations together where producers share operational constraints with the goal of connecting them to an agency or organization with project funding and capacity to match their operation's needs.
NONPOINT SOURCE POLLUTION
KWP partnered with State and local offices to promote protection of our waters by reducing nonpoint source pollution. Education messaging encouraging responsible waste disposal can be seen at Klamath Falls sewer drains, at boat ramps, and in city parks. Check out our NPS brochure and clean water brochure to learn what you can do to lessen nonpoint source pollution.
KWP has provided outreach and education regarding living and working with beavers for many years, and is now supporting research and efforts at restoration of beavers through partner programs. Check out our Living and Working with Beavers brochure.
