If you answered "YES" to any of these, you are invited to apply to the Tribal Youth Ecological Forestry Training Program!
The Klamath Tribes' Natural Resources and Education and Employment Departments have partnered with Lomakatsi Restoration Project, to facilitate the Tribal Youth Ecological Forestry Training Program. Selected young adults aged 18-24 will gain valuable workforce experience through hands-on training in technical forestry, working with professional staff from the Klamath Tribes' Natural Resources Department and Lomakatsi Restoration Project, as part of a large-scale forest restoration stewardship initiative on the Klamath Reservation Forest. The program runs from June 11 through July 20 and most work is performed in the field with some classroom instruction time.

The judge referenced will decide whether to overturn a decision to release water to keep the juvenile salmon from dying. The upper Basin farmers guys got water through the drought while others (even Westlands) were restricted. Over 90% of the juvenile salmon died three years in a row in the Klamath due to the fact they did not face a lower water allocation.
The Klamath Basin may have another water shut off like we did in 2001. On April 11th a judge in San Francisco will will make a ruling that will determine if any... water can be released to irrigate the Klamath basin. If no water can be released over 200,000 Acres known as the Klamath project as well as Ranches above Klamath will be without water. Farmers plan to be present at the courthouse in San Francisco on April 11th when the judge makes its ruling. We are asking that everyone please spread the word. Anyone in the basin willing to carpool or ride the bus down is being asked to call the Klamath Water Users for details on where buses will leave from as well as the time and location of the hearing. Contact Klamath Water Users at 541-883-6100. This is the future of agriculture and water rights for farms we are fighting for. Please post on your wall or forward

These flows are ordered by a judge because the BOR and NOAA let over 90% of the juvenile fish die during the drought. Now they want to scale back flows and drain the refuges rather then scale back farmer's water use again.
Money for new dams and the Shasta dam raise are in the budget bill.
"This budget provides funding for the Trump Administration to implement the WIIN Act—bipartisan water infrastructure legislation that was signed by President Obama. Specifically, it fully funds the Administration’s request for four California water projects—including $20 million for design and pre-construction work to enlarge Shasta Dam, a project originally authorized in 1980. This enlargement would provide ...an additional 634,000 acre-feet of water that can be used for our communities and the environment, including for additional cold water storage to help migrating salmon. Also included is $5.8 million to complete the longstanding pending studies for the proposed Sites and Temperance Flat reservoirs, which would create over 3 million acre-feet of new storage in California, along with $2.2 million to begin to address subsidence on the Friant-Kern Canal, which serves the east side of the Central Valley."
