Lomakatsi Restoration Project is a nonprofit, grassroots organization that develops and implements forest and watershed restoration initiatives, programs and projects throughout Oregon and northern California.
Youth Ecological Forestry Training & Employment Program
Lomakatsi is honored to be a Program Partner of Oregon Conservation Corps, which is funding two expanded 18-week sessions of our training program model for youth ages 18-26. The first session, which ran October 2022–February 2023 served 10 tribal young adults from the Chiloquin community in Klamath County. The second session runs February–June 2023, serving 10 young adults from Jackson County. Participants earn nationally-recognized certifications and gain hands-on experience in ecological restoration and fuels reduction, including through our landscape-scale collaborative initiatives.

What We Do
For over 27 years, Lomakatsi has partnered closely with local, state and federal agencies, Tribal Nations, nonprofits, community members, and many others to restore thousands of acres of forests and miles of streams. We strive to advance social equity by layering in education, tribal partnerships, and workforce training and development programs, while helping to create more resilient ecosystems and communities across all lands. Our four main project areas are below.
Lomakatsi’s mission is to restore ecosystems and the sustainability of communities, cultures, and economies.
