KS Wild's Adopt-a-Botanical Area program is a community watchdog program designed to mobilize volunteers to be Our Community’s eyes and ears on the ground in designated Botanical Areas throughout the Klamath-Siskiyou region.
Through KS Wild's ABA Program you will:
Get to know a special place
Promote awareness of regional biodiversity
Engage in community based conversation
Adopting a Botanical Area is a one-year commitment to:
- Visit your chosen area at least once a season and send us assessments to document flora and fauna and potential sources of disruption or illegal activity on the site.
- Detect threats to botanical resources and communicate with the Program Coordinate to appropriately address the issues
- Pick-up trash at least once a year – if it is overwhelming call us and we will organize a clean-up.
We are glad to share in a community of stewardship:
- Participate in training events, and other optional events like invasive weed pulls, trash clean-ups, plant ID walks
- Help us to grow our community, providing tools of engagement for others to learn more about their public lands
