Based in Petrolia, CA, the mission of the Mattole Restoration Council is to restore the natural systems in the Mattole River Watershed and sustain the levels of health and productivity of forests, fisheries, soil, and other plant and animal communities. The organization works to protect the King Range National Conservation Area by working on policy, education, communications and restoration. These programs include working on river restoration, introducing fire management regimes in the King Range, and working to communicate the values and resources of the King Range to visitors and to the community. The organization is part of the Mattole River and Range Partnership.
