The Kilarc Foundation

An Independent Non-profit Organization
for Restoration and Support of Migrating Fish

Current Staff and Management


Initial Trustees

Lindsay H. Allen, PhD
Richard D. Ely III, PhD, Trustee pro tem

Future Trustees

When funding moves from being primarily from Davis Hydro to other sources, specifically the Kilarc Project for which the foundation is named, and when projects move from the primary genetic and epigenetic interests and hands-on projects of Dr. Ely, he will resign, or offer to resign, as Director in favor of someone with strong credentials in this very new field. Currently, Dr. Ely is also serving as Director, and is working with other potential Trustees to organize a Board interested in the health of anadromous and catadromous fish.
