Welcome to MKWC!
Since 2001, the Mid Klamath Watershed Council (MKWC) has been working to restore the threatened Klamath River in Northern California and the upslope habitats upon which the river depends.
The Klamath River and its tributaries, including the Salmon and Trinity Rivers, have some of the largest remaining wild salmon runs in the lower 48 States and hold the promise of significant ecological improvement through restoration programs.
MKWC is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization formed by a diverse group of participants in 2001. Our programs in the Middle Klamath subbasin include Watershed Education, Invasive Weed Management, Roads, Fire and Fuels, Fisheries, Wildlife, Foodsheds and Native Plants. We leverage state, federal, and private grant funding, combined with community volunteerism to accomplish high-value and low-cost restoration actions throughout the Middle Klamath subbasin.
The MKWC office is housed within the Panamnik Building in Orleans, California. The Panamnik Building is owned and operated by MKWC and is home to the Panamnik Building Community Center. Please stop by and check us out!

MKWC and partners will be making every effort to give neighbors and community members a heads-up as scheduling gets worked out for specific burns. Please help by passing the word to expect smoke from controlled burns during this two week period in our River communities. Questions? Call 627-3202
