The Yainix Ranch is a property located on the Sycan River near the confluence with the Sprague River near Beatty, Oregon. The Klamath Tribes hold a conservation easement on the property along with the National Resource Conservation Service, and Oregon Watershed Enhancement Board. Substantial restoration work has been completed on the property which includes two miles of the Sycan River. Currently, cattle utilize an off-stream watering facility that is located near the river and sediment and cattle manure that accumulates around the atering facility runs off into the river.

Project Benefit    

The Klamath Tribes will move the water trough further from the river to a location where the overflow from the trough drains to a wetland area and install a rock pad around the trough to reduce erosion.
