The Western Klamath Restoration Partnership (WKRP) is an open group comprised of the Federal, Tribal, and Non-governmental Organization (NGO) participants with the inclusion of facilitators and additional invitees. This Partnership allows diverse stakeholders to come together to accomplish work by identifying Zones of Agreement where all parties agree upslope restoration needs to occur. In 2013, the WKRP with support from the US Fire Learning Network (FLN) invited Forest Service leadership to participate in a series of workshops to define mutual all-lands fire management and ecological restoration goals.  Together they created a shared vision for restoring fire resilience at the landscape scale, founded upon Traditional Ecological Knowledge (TEK) and practices and concepts outlined in the National Cohesive Wildland Fire Management Strategy. This vision incorporated social, ecological, economic and cultural values spatially across a 1.2 million acre landscape to determine where restoration treatments would yield the most results with the least amount of impacts.
