  • Bureau of Reclamation
    NFWF continues to work with the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation (Reclamation) to develop and implement the Walker Basin Restoration Program in Nevada 
    and California. The program’s primary objective is to restore and maintain Walker Lake, with a secondary objective of protecting agriculture, environmental and habitat interests. In fiscal year 2016, the program supported $20.7 million in acquisitions from willing sellers and $8 million in research, conservation and stewardship grants within the Walker, Truckee, Carson and Summit lake basins. Reclamation and NFWF also extended a second year of funding for habitat improvements to benefit coho salmon and other native fish in the Lower Klamath Basin of California and provided a fourth year of support for a multi-agency youth employment program that supports conservation projects at Reclamation facilities.
