lower klamath refuge


KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. – Dry conditions last year led to an avian cholera outbreak at the Lower Klamath National Wildlife Refuge last month, and thousands of birds died. New projections from the Bureau of Reclamation’s Klamath Basin office show water is flowing at the refuge again, but it’s still a situation of cautious optimism, and it’s not clear how long the refuge will have the more abundant supplies.
