2022 Pacific Chapter Trip: Klamath River

June 10-12, 2022

The Pacific Chapter invites you to join us for a weekend on the Klamath River, a regional gem that will become a historic icon as host for the largest dam removal event in our nation’s history, scheduled for 2023-24. The Klamath River Watershed and Basin have often been called the "Everglades of the West" as the most extensive freshwater wetland west of the Mississippi River. Sturgeon, lamp ray, steelhead, trout and many, many terrestrial species rely on the river as did salmon, whose population is now only 10% of historic levels. Planning underway for the removal of four dams is being driven by Tribes, anglers, industry, government and a committed cohort of community and conservation advocates and will establish a model for large-scale dam removal. This weekend will provide a real-world meeting for sharing information and ideas about establishing/reinforcing collaborative working relationships among Klamath River stakeholders.
