Since the 1970s, when Phil Wallin began his career in land conservation with the Trust for Public Land, he has implemented and adapted to substantial changes in the land acquisition process. Phil is the co-founder of the Western Rivers Conservancy (WRC), an organization that is up to the challenge to save the Blue Creek watershed. The project will restore one of the most important salmon rivers in California – the Klamath River. It includes the acquisition of more than 50,000 acres of land connecting the Blue Creek tributary to the Lower Klamath River in Northern California. The Klamath River Project is a partnership with the WRC and the Yurok Indian tribe to create a salmon sanctuary and a Yurok tribal preserve. Phil discusses the complexities and progress of this large project. Who better to take on that charge?
