This dataset depicts staffed visitor stations within the Pacific Southwest Region of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Staffed visitor stations may be refuge offices that are open to the public during specified hours, or may be dedicated visitor centers. This dataset does not include kiosks or other areas which contain information for visitors but are not staffed. The locations of these stations are based on the USFWS Corporate Master Table, with additional editing and updates based on the input of field and visitor services staff.

The Quartz Valley Indian Reservation will partner with tribes, federal agencies and higher education institutions in the Klamath Basin on a tribal youth intern program for the summer of 2014. This program will build on current efforts to integrate western science and TEK for climate change planning and adaptation in the Klamath Basin.

The Quartz Valley Indian Reservation (QVIR) partnered with tribes, federal agencies, watershed councils, and higher education institutions in the Klamath Basin for this project during summer of 2014. This project built upon current efforts to integrate western science and traditional ecological knowledge (TEK) for climate change planning and adaptation in the Klamath Basin. North Pacific Landscape Conservation Cooperative (NPLCC), Northwest Climate Science Center (NW CSC), and additional federal funding from the USDA Forest Service and other federal agencies supported five tribal interns. The internship project was 10-weeks in the summer 2014. The tribal students were college-level from the Klamath Tribes, QVIR,...

Wildfires, Traditional Burning, and Prescribed have been a way of shaping the landscape of the Klamath Basin for thousands of years. I’ve been researching these subjects for the past summer during my internship for the KBTYP (Klamath Basin Tribal Youth Program). In my time spent up and down the Klamath Basin I have found a great interest in fire, so I decided to write my report on it. This report will detail information about the different types of burning and how each one has a different effect on the climate of the Klamath Basin. It’s been a great experience for me and I have learned a lot from different agencies and people such as, tribal governments, tribal elders, fish and wildlife, people from various communities,...
The Klamath Basin is under constant stress due to a changing climate, unpredictable weather patterns, and management of the forests. The physical geography of the Klamath Basin itself is at the heart of many of the regions ecological issues. With much of the Western U.S. suffering from several years of drought, the disruptions caused by urbanization, expansive agriculture, and climate change are causing problems for the traditional practices of the members of the Klamath Tribes in the Upper Klamath Basin. The Klamath Basin sprawls over the state boundary of California and Oregon, politically dividing the upper and lower basins. Vast differences in landscape, ecology, and topography further isolate the communities...

Vegetation and land cover for Bear Valley NWR. This dataset was created as part of the Comprehensive Conservation Plan for the Klamath Basin Complex. The dataset was created through interpretation of 2014 NAIP imagery, with expert knowledge from refuge staff and ground based observations. It was created by classifying 2014 National Agricultural Imagery Program imagery. The NAIP imagery was divided into segments using eCognition software and then classified into land cover categories based on field observations and expert knowledge. The field observations were conducted in October 2014. The vegetation categories are based on the National Vegetation Classification (www.usnvc.org) and the field attributes include the...

The Yurok Ancestral Territory, which spans northwestern California from the coastal redwood-spruce rainforest to inland forests and prairies, has provided the Yurok Tribe with an abundance of food and cultural resources for millennia. The Yurok Tribe maintains stewardship responsibility for their Ancestral Lands, which include the Yurok Reservation, and is concerned about the potential impacts of climate change on culturally significant species and the ecosystems that support them. This project had two broad objectives: The first was to meet the needs of the Yurok Tribe in collecting traditional ecological knowledge (TEK) to identify priority areas and activities for helping the Tribe plan for and respond to climate...

The six federally recognized tribes of the Klamath Basin have depended on traditional foods for survival since time immemorial. Frequent, low-severity fires were implemented historically by tribal peoples to help enhance traditional foods and manage forest growth. For the Karuk Tribe, living in the Mid-Klamath region, over 75% of traditional foods were enriched by fire (Norgaard 2014). Due to the enactment of fire suppression as a national policy for almost a century, many tribal members today do not have access to traditional foods, negatively impacting biological and psychological health. The procurement of traditional foods requires detailed knowledge of the environment, and since the tribal peoples of the Klamath...
