This joint webinar between SERCAL and SER discusses the Klamath Dam Removal project. This project will be the largest dam removal and river restoration project in U.S. history. It is the culmination of various groups coming to the table and putting the restoration of natural resources ahead of the imperiled status quo. Dam removal is set to begin as early as 2020.

Speakers Craig Tucker and Michael Belchik have represented the Karuk and Yurok tribes’ involvement during the planning process of the Klamath dam removal. For over 14 years, Craig Tucker served as the Natural Resources Policy Advocate for the Karuk Tribe, working on a wide range of issues that affect Karuk cultural and environmental resources. Craig focused much of his efforts during his tenure with Karuk on the removal of the lower four Klamath River Dams. Michael Belchik is currently the Senior Water Policy Analyst for the Yurok Tribe.
