A Decade of Collaborative Oak Restoration Highlights 2011-2023

The Klamath Siskiyou Oak Network (KSON) is a regional collaboration between local agencies, tribes, and non-profit organizations that works to conserve oak ecosystems on private and public lands in southern Oregon and northern California. Since 2011, KSON partners have accomplished thousands of acres of strategic ecological restoration to enhance oak habitat, build climate resilience, bolster cultural resources, and reduce wildfire risk to the ecosystem and communities. This handout highlights the power of collaboration and a decade-plus of successful oak habitat restoration.

Klamath Siskiyou Oak Network Ecological Monitoring Plan

The overarching goals of this monitoring plan are to work in partnership to acquire, curate, analyze, and distribute data needed to transparently evaluate performance toward achieving the outputs and outcomes identified in the KSON Strategic Action Plan (SAP). As part of the SAP, the partnership used a viability assessment framework to inform the selection of six Key Ecological Attributes (KEAs) and identified indicators to measure conditions for each target habitat.
