The Klamath-Cascade: California's Watershed in the Balance
Pacific Forest Trust is pursuing a major strategic initiative to conserve one of America’s priceless forest treasures, the Klamath-Cascade Region. Stretching across almost 10 million acres in an arc from Mount Lassen across northern California to the headwaters of the mighty Klamath River in Oregon, the forests of the Klamath-Cascade are a patchwork of public and private ownerships that anchor both globally recognized biodiversity and California’s timber industry. Fed by glaciers and snowmelt from Mount Lassen and Mount Shasta, the Region’s great rivers provide drinking water for more than 22 million Californians. PFT holds a growing network of conservation easements here. Read more about the Klamath-Cascade and our conservation projects in this report.
