News Press release Work for CWA
CWA is pleased to announce our new director of marketing and communications, Brad Isbell.
California Waterfowl entered into a contract with the California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) to fund the transfer of up to 3,750 acre-feet of irrigation water from a landowner in the Wood River Valley of Oregon to help flood Unit 2 and other wetland habitat at the Lower Klamath National Wildlife Refuge.
The California Fish and Game Commission recently considered a proposal by a resident of the City of Benicia to ban waterfowl hunting on navigable waters, including Southampton Bay, and certain shoreline areas adjacent to the City. CWA, along with many concerned hunters and other hunting groups, urged the Commission to reject the Benicia hunt ban petition.
In light of ongoing drought and significantly reduced wetland habitat conditions, California Waterfowl has entered into a contract with Klamath Drainage District (KDD), farmers located north of the Lower Klamath National Wildlife Refuge, to purchase up to 2,000 acre-feet of agricultural drain water to help maintain water levels in Unit 2 and possibly also flood Unit 3.

“Keep your heads tucked in,” the guides whispered as thousands of specks circled above the decoys, every one of them looking for the faintest hint of danger. Like a flight of aircraft on D-Day looking for the perfect landing zone, the specks finally committed, swarming into the decoy spread.
The massive federal infrastructure bill signed into law by the president on Nov. 15 provides a significant opportunity to aid the parched Lower Klamath National Wildlife Refuge: $162 million to be used by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service earmarked for “Klamath Basin restoration activities.”
