Mendocino County Water Agency
The Mendocino County Water Agency provided important information from their on-going watershed monitoring programs. Hydrologist Dennis Slota worked closely with KRIS staff to assemble data sets for inclusion in KRIS Russian.
Mendocino Redwood Company
The Mendocino Redwood Company was cooperative in every way with the KRIS Russian project, supplying fisheries, water quality and large wood data as well as GIS and watershed analysis documents. MRC staff also participated in peer review.
The Mendocino County Resource Conservation District

USDA Forest Service Redwood Sciences Lab
The Pacific Southwest Region Experimental Station in Arcata, California, known as the Redwood Sciences Lab, generously shared their scientific literature and data and participated in peer review.
USFS Remote Sensing Lab, Sacramento, CA
The USFS Remote Sensing Lab provided forest stand and vegetation coverages for the KRIS Map and database projects. The USFS works cooperatively with CDF FRAP on many projects.
U.S. Environmental Protection Agency
The US Environmental Protection Agency provided spatial data on land cover in the overall region encompassing the KRIS Russian Project area.
NOAA Fisheries staff contributed biological opinion documentation concerning activities in the Russian River basin and also provided valuable input and guidance on presentations within KRIS Russian. NOAA staff also participated in review of draft products. The NOAA Russian River GIS project was a valuable source of data for inclusion in KRIS Russian.
Community Clean Water Institute
The Community Clean Water Institute generously shared data and photos representing their work with the community and water quality sampling in the KRIS Russian Project area.
Phillip Williams and Associates
Phillip Williams and Associates, ltd. provided documents and access to files including photos and data. Several of their staff were extremely generous in helping to identify and prepare such material.
Circuit Rider Productions, Inc
Circuit Rider Productions staff coordinated with the KRIS Russian project to help ensure the best possible products for restorationists and scientists. Many documents were obtained from CRP, and CRP staff participated in review of KRIS Russian.
The California Department of Fish and Game (CDFG) provided data for the KRIS Russian project. Region 3 Headquarters in Yountville was particularly instrumental in project success because it provided access to archived stream files including historical reports.
Conservation Technology Support Program and ESRI
The Conservation Technology Support Program, with the support of the Earth Science 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 Russian 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.
American Fisheries Society
The American Fisheries Society (AFS) allowed inclusion of some of its journal articles in the KRIS 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 fully covered by copyright and may not be re-used without written permission from AFS.
