Since our inception in 1995, Lomakatsi has been deeply involved in streamside restoration efforts around Oregon’s Rogue Valley and beyond. We work with agency, tribal, municipal, and nonprofit partners to raise funding, plan, and implement projects that enhance and protect important waterways.
Streamside restoration efforts focus on enhancing salmon habitat, improving fish passage, providing sources of in-stream wood, and replanting riparian forests to benefit a variety of wildlife from birds to pollinators. Many projects are accomplished on private lands through long-standing cooperative agreements with the US Fish & Wildlife Service, the Oregon Department of Fish & Wildlife, and local Watershed Councils.
Locations where Lomakatsi works include Bear Creek and its tributaries, Cottonwood Creek, and Kitchen Creek, just to name a few.
