Elva Manquera-DeShields, who is in charge of outreach, underlined how important it is to restore habitat for the animals that live in the area.

She explained that the ultimate purpose of the project was to “have short-term and long-term benefits for birds, big game species, and other wildlife that are dependent on the oak woodland and oak conifer habitat.”

The Klamath Siskiyou Oak Network will collaborate with the newly established Habitat Division of the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife to carry out restoration work during the following year.
