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 takes employee and community safety very seriously. We have updated our policies and procedures and have an approved re-open plan from the County of Humboldt. In an effort to reduce the risk of exposure and spread of COVID-19 in our community, the community center will remain closed to the public and events are cancelled for the foreseeable future.
We are monitoring the Centers for Disease Control Prevention, World Health Organization, and California Public Health Service’s statements regarding COVID-19. We will continue to assess the situation and provide you with updates.
Please remember to do what you can to keep yourself and your community safe and healthy, including staying home if possible, washing your hands regularly with hot water for at least 20 seconds, covering your cough or sneeze with a tissue or your elbow, and avoiding touching your face.
If you have any questions please contact us at mail@mkwc.org.
Thank you for all that you are doing to take care of each other during these challenging times!
