Klamath Siskiyou Oak Network

Klamath Siskiyou Oak Network
The Klamath Siskiyou Oak Network (KSON) is a collaborative regional partnership. Our mission is to conserve oak habitats on private and public lands in southern Oregon and northern California.
KSON works with the community and partners within the Klamath Siskiyou Bioregion to:
  • Promote the restoration and conservation of oak habitats
  • Provide a forum for education and community engagement on issues affecting oak plant communities
  • Encourage applied science, monitoring, and adaptive management in the restoration of oak habitats
  • Develop and promote best management practices for oak restoration
  • Integrate social, economic, and eco-cultural values in the understanding of oak plant communities
  • Form partnerships and alliances with organizations that share interests in habitat conservation and restoration of oak savanna, woodlands, and mixed forest
KSON’s work is guided by its OWEB-funded Strategic Conservation Action Plan. To join the KSON listserv, email the KSON coordinator.
