Resilient

A word from CalTrout’s ED, Curtis Knight

Resilient. It’s what you must be to work in the nonprofit world in California. Resilience will carry California, and the rest of the world, through these challenging times. And at California Trout, it’s baked into everything we do.
 
Long before COVID-19 became a household word, CalTrout had built financial resiliency into the organization with a reserve fund to carry us through dips in the road. Our restoration work is also resilient with its long-term approach and projects that continue relatively unimpeded. As well, we’ve received assurances from government funding agencies (56% of our revenue) that they are processing invoices with little delay.
 
Our operations are also a model of resilience. Our staff is set up diligently forging ahead from their home offices and, like the rest of the world, are recalibrating to the new normal. Like many of you, our calendars have remained full these last few weeks as we adjust from in-person meetings to virtual collaboration and video conferences. Through these channels, we’re continuing negotiations on the PG&E’s Potter Valley Project, tracking the exciting progress of the Klamath River Renewal Corporation at a virtual Board Meeting, continuing our participation in the Advisory Council to Stanford’s Water in the West program, and leading the quarterly meeting for our Southern Steelhead Coalition quarterly meeting —just to name a few!
 
Over the coming weeks, we’ll continue to bring you updates and news of our work to support resiliency in our native fish and rivers. We know that, when given the chance, they will recover and come back stronger than before. Resilient.
 
We hope the same for you and yours: Be strong. Be healthy. Be resilient.
 
Stay healthy,

CURTIS SIG
