The Walker Basin Restoration Program

Watch a video about the Program

In 2017 the Walker Basin Conservancy accepted the lead for all Walker Basin Restoration Program activities. The Walker Basin Restoration Program (WBRP) aims to restore and maintain the Walker Lake and River system in partnership with local communities, irrigators, agencies and organizations. The program will support acquisition and leasing of water from willing sellers, as well as associated conservation, stewardship and research activities. The Program is managed by the Walker Basin Conservancy.
