K-S Wild (the name they do business under,) are officially the Klamath-Siskiyou Wildlands Center, a 501(c)(3) Tax Exempt conservation organization.
They are an extremist environmental group which covers the Klamath-Siskiyou region, which is a beautiful and wild area that stretches from southern Oregon into northern California. Their main interests seem to be fish and owls and taking people's water rights. (Watch out if you're a fisherman, a farmer, or a vintner – you may next on the list!)
They make their money (and it's a LOT of money!) each year by holding their begging bowl out to the general public for private donations, memberships, foundation grants and constant litigation. Their net assets for the year end (2011) were in excess of $250,000. (See PDF link below)
And watch out for the Executive Director position coming up for grabs! They get a cool $44,000 a year for a 40 hour week (as stated in the organization's 2011 IRS 990 form, available to view here -http://www.guidestar.org/FinDocuments/2011/931/246/2011-931246139-08ab40d3-9.pdf
In 2007, KS Wild blocked 75 timber sales in south-west Oregon costing numerous jobs in the region. And stay tuned while we work on what all this is costing YOU - we're going to bring you an actual dollar amount of tax payer money that has to be spent on court cases by the various agencies KS Wild file lawsuits against, and the dollar amounts of the settlements KS Wild receive from their sue-happy lifestyles.
And just a note about this blog - you will NEVER hear one word of a lie here. We deal in facts. There is no need for miss-information or distortion - the truth is horrific enough.
