Facilitating restoration projects on public and private forestland in Klamath and Lake Counties through education, outreach, and diverse partnerships.
The Klamath Lake Forest Health Partnership (KLFHP) is a cooperative network of diverse local and regional partners who have come together to address forestland management in the region. Within Klamath and Lake Counties, opportunities exist to address ecological restoration and stewardship needs while providing quality jobs for local workers and woody restoration byproducts for local manufacturing. Accomplishing this requires a new approach to natural resource stewardship: one that is locally-supported, incentive-driven, and relies on the power of solutions that integrate the environmental, economic, and social needs of communities.
In order to develop and maintain sustainable forestry and productive forests in the Klamath-Lake Region, KLFHP is committed to:
Providing technological and ecological information on forest health;
Serving as a resource for all forest landowners in diagnosing and addressing forest health problems;
Working cooperatively with landowners, the general public, and forest operators to educate and encourage best management practices on forest lands; and
Using innovative partnerships and funding sources to increase the pace and scale of restoration across public and private lands.
