The Upper Snake River Tribes Foundation is composed of four Indian Tribes located in the Upper Snake River region of present-day Idaho, Nevada, and Oregon. Member Tribes include the Burns Paiute Tribe, Fort McDermitt Paiute-Shoshone Tribe, Shoshone-Bannock Tribes of the Fort Hall Reservation, and Shoshone-Paiute Tribes of the Duck Valley Reservation.
The Upper Snake River Tribes Foundation works on climate resilience projects in partnership with its four member Tribes. In 2017, the Foundation published the Upper Snake River Tribes Foundation Climate Change Vulnerability Assessment for the Upper Snake River Watershed in partnership with member Tribes, Adaptation International, and the Oregon Climate Change Research Institute. The Foundation created short summary sheets for key focus species that provided a graphically rich way to share information with the Tribal community on the relative climate change vulnerability of different species.
