Water

Nowhere in America is there better opportunity to restore an entire river system.

in a speech to the California Wilderness Conference in Sacramento, 2001

Speeches and Testimony

"Bald Eagle Conference Plenary Speech" is a general overview of my views and vision for the Klamath Basin. It was given at the annual Bald Eagle Conference in 2000. It examines the plight of the extraordinary Klamath River Basin and how more much can be made locally from conserving and restoring nature rather than exploiting and depleting it.

"Tulelake Rotary Speech" presented my views and vision for the Klamath Basin in 1993. Prior to giving this speech, I was served with a SLAPP ("Strategic Lawsuit Against Public Participation") suit. It was later withdrawn by the plaintiff in exchange for the Oregon Natural Resources Council not suing him.

"Klamath Falls House Resources Committee Field Hearing Testimony" was summarized orally on June 16, 2001 at the Klamath County Fairgrounds Events Center before a hostile audience of approximately 1,500 people.

Oregon Wild and WaterWatch of Oregon are two of my very favorite groups working on the conservation and restoration of the Klamath Basin.
