Klamath River Basin Activities


The Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) and local partners are bringing the benefits of voluntary, locally-led conservation to farmers, ranchers, Tribes, and other private landowners in the Klamath River Basin.

The Natural Resources Conservation Service in California and Oregon provides technical assistance in conservation planning and on-farm conservation implementation through federal financial program funding, such as the Farm Bill.
