Lomakatsi is excited to welcome another cohort to our Tribal Youth Ecological Forestry Training & Employment Program this week, funded by Oregon Conservation Corps (Oregon Youth Works).

This cohort brings together 12 tribal young adults (ages 18-26) from Klamath County who have dedicated the next 8 months to learning the ins-and-outs of ecological forest restoration. Led by Lomakatsi’s restoration forestry professionals and ecocultural restoration specialists, they’ll earn nationally recognized certifications and gain hands-on experience in ecological fuels mitigation, technical forestry, cultural monitoring, and prescribed fire through collaborative projects across tribal trust, private, and federal lands.

Here are some photos of participants, crew managers, and Lomakatsi staff celebrating the program kick-off and first training session this week at the Lomakatsi office in Ashland. We’re grateful to be a Program Partner of this statewide effort to create fire-adapted communities and train the workforce of tomorrow.
Welcome to the new crew!
