The primary purposes for which Klamath Forest Alliance is organized is to act in the public interest by promoting sustainable ecosystems and communities.
The Klamath Forest Alliance runs six major programs aimed at protecting the unique values of the Klamath-Siskiyou Mountains. Our programs are based on years of experience advocating for wildlands, rivers, salmon, wildlife, old-growth forests and intact ecosystems.
The Klamath-Siskiyou Mountains are a place of raw, rugged beauty, renowned biodiversity and dramatic contrast. Tucked into the remote borderlands of the southern Oregon and northern California, the region is wild and largely inaccessible.
The Klamath Forest Alliance (KFA) has been advocating for the Klamath-Siskiyou Mountains since 1989. The organization was formed by rural residents in the most remote reaches of the Klamath-Siskiyou Mountains and has always maintained a strong grassroots approach. We advocate for wilderness and roadless landscapes, biodiversity, connectivity and the ecological integrity of the region.
Klamath Forest Alliance has long been focused on the watersheds of northern California including the Klamath River, Salmon River, Scott River, Smith River and Trinity River. However, since 2012 we have been steadily broadening our scope and expanding north into the Siskiyou Mountains. We now also work in numerous Oregon watersheds, including the Applegate River, Rogue River, Chetco River and Illinois River watersheds.
Klamath Forest Alliance is working to build a diverse, grassroots environmental movement, rooted in the rural communities that surround our public lands. We combine passionate advocacy, deep knowledge of the land, on-the-ground public land monitoring, science, community organizing, grassroots environmental activism and litigation to support conservation throughout the Klamath-Siskiyou bioregion. We work to keep the Klamath-Siskiyou wild and to maintain the region’s world-class biodiversity.
