What We Do
Themakes a $1.4 billion down payment in the conservation and stewardship of America’s public lands that will lead to better outdoor spaces and habitats for people and wildlife for generations to come, with the Klamath Basin set to receive $162 million over five years to restore the regional ecosystem and repair local economies.
As drought conditions persist throughout the region, the Klamath Basin’s fragile ecosystem will depend on collaborative partnerships among a wide variety of stakeholders and the development of holistic solutions. The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law’s once-in-a-generation funding will help rebuild communities by investing in the ecological infrastructure of the Klamath Basin while saving cherished fish and wildlife from further decline.
In an effort to continue to protect federally Endangered Species Act listed fish in the Klamath Basin, $10 million is being invested to support the Klamath Falls National Fish Hatchery’s expansion. This investment will increase rearing capacity for two federally Endangered Species Act listed fish -- the Lost River and shortnose suckers (C’waam and Koptu) -- found only in the Klamath Basin.
