Klamath River Consensus Building; $48,000
The Klamath River is one of four river systems that originate east of the Sierra/Cascade Mountains linking to the Pacific Ocean. Many people depend on a vibrant Klamath river system for livelihood, drinking, industry, and environmental quality. The Klamath River supports agriculture, fishing, communities, timber, electricity, wildlife and fisheries.
Working together to restore the Klamath River and to keep local communities alive and sustainable a series of consensus building workshops were developed and attended by Klamath Basin Stakeholders, a regional consensus building group. ORE-CAL partnered with Klamath Basin Stakeholders, multi-resource administration agencies and organizations representing farmers, ranchers, foresters, fishing industry, Native-American tribes and communities to sponsor the Klamath Basin Conference in Redding, CA. The result of the conference was establishment of a "One Voice" restoration funding package which was delivered to State legislators.
James and ORE-CAL staff provided administrative and facilitation services to the Klamath Basin communities in this series of workshops to help resolve issues and build consensus for a long-term plan and vision.
Assisted by James, ORE-CALRC&D Council completed the Klamath Basin Adaptive Management Plan, providing direction and creating long-term goals for all of the communities depending on the Klamath River.
