Becky Hyde, Off-Project rancher's wife at the KBRA table

back to Who's Who

Becky Hyde is married to a rancher in the Off-Project in the Upper Klamath Basin. 2009 - Hyde's new little group, Upper Klamath Water Users Association, claiming to represent off-Project irrigators, is allowed at the controversial closed-door KBRA/Klamath Basin Restoration Agreement table and also the PacifiCorp dam removal negotiation table. She previously supported giving 690,000 acres of the Winema Fremont forest to the Klamath Tribes. Both closed-door negotiations failed from widespread opposition. Hyde worked for Sustainable NW, an environmental group working for the Klamath Tribes. SNW president Martin Goebel was director of World Wildlife Fund, funded by Soros-funded Tides; WWF is partner of United Nations Foundation with Soros and Ford Foundation. Resource Conservancy, representing more than 100,000 acres, was not allowed at the KBRA table by KBRA (Klamath dam removal) proponents.

2019 - Hyde is on the  “Coalition of the Willing” group in closed-door meetings co-chaired by Klamath Riverkeeper board member and Karuk Tribe spokesman Craig Tucker, and Dan Keppen, former Bureau of Reclamation employee, former Klamath Water User Association executive director, and director of Family Farm Alliance. All three were at the closed-door negotiation table of the failed controversial KBRA / Klamath Basin Restoration Agreement which supported destroying Klamath River hydroelectric dams.

Hyde is on the payroll making $63,835 in 2007 from Sustainable NW, a consultant to the Klamath Tribes. Her parents were paid $77,557 with Country Natural Beef Coop in 2006. "Klamath Basin - Sustainable NW is working in the greater Klamath Basin region to catalyze and build necessary relationships, trust and partnership between tribes, landowners, agencies and environmental organizations that can lead to shared solutions to complex local and watershed-wide conflicts and degradation of natural resources." --- $447,158
