USFS Spatial Analysis Lab, Sacramento, CA
The USFS Spatial Analysis Lab in Sacramento provided forest stand and vegetation coverages for the KRIS Map and database projects. The USFS works cooperatively with CDF FRAP on many projects.
The Friends of the Garcia River (FROG)
FROG is a non-profit organization dedicated to the restoration and preservation of the Garcia River and the intelligent civic planning within it's watershed. Peter Dobbins of the Friends of the Garcia River provided photographs, data and map information which are valuable additions to the KRIS Garcia database.

The museum and library is a subsidiary of the Mendocino Historical Society. Photos may be viewed in KRIS but any other use must be approved by the Mendocino Historical Society.
Institute for Forest and Watershed Management
The Institute for Forest and Watershed Management, formerly known as the Forest Science Project, provided water temperature data and associated locations in an electronic form to the KRIS Garcia project.
The Americorp Watershed Stewards Project
Elizabeth Earthman and Jennifer Presnell of the Americorp Watershed Stewards Program helped organize Garcia River restoration photos for use in the KRIS Garcia database and also assisted with data collection in the field. Their work is reflected in mainstem Garcia River dive counts in August 2002 and South Fork Garcia River habitat typing reports by the California Department of Fish and Game, which were based on data they collected.
Conservation Technology Support Program and ESRI
The Conservation Technology Support Program, with the support of the Environmental Systems Research Institute (ESRI), awarded a grant for hardware and software to the Institute for Fisheries Resources (IFR), which made it possible to assemble the KRIS Garcia Map project. The Conservation Technology Support Program (CTSP) annually awards grants for equipment, software and training to tax-exempt conservation organizations to build their Geographic Information Systems (GIS) capacity.
The National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF) is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization established by Congress in 1984 and dedicated to creating public/private partnerships to conserve our Nation's fish, wildlife, and plant resources. NFWF supplied the original funding for the KRIS Garcia project in the form of a Pacific Grassroots Salmon Initiative grant.
American Fisheries Society
The American Fisheries Society (AFS) allowed inclusion of some of its journal articles in the CD version of the KRIS Garcia Bibliography. AFS has posted recent journals on the internet, and the entire contents of these journals are available with a subscription. Article abstracts may be viewed at no cost. All AFS journal articles in KRIS are still fully covered by copyright and may not be re-used without written permission from AFS.
