A Historic Stewardship Effort for California
Conserving Watershed Lands
Investing in Our Youth
The Pacific Forest and Watershed Lands Stewardship Council (Stewardship Council) is a private, nonprofit foundation that was established in 2004 as part of a Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) settlement.
We have two goals: to ensure that over 140,000 acres of California's pristine watershed lands are conserved for the public good through our Land Conservation Program, and to invest in outdoor programs that serve California's young people through our Youth Investment Program.
Bringing a broad range of interests and expertise to the Stewardship Council, our Board of Directors is made up of leading conservation, natural resource management, business, and public officials.
The Stewardship Council is working collaboratively with the people of California on this historic effort. If you would like to learn more about working with us for the benefit of our watershed lands or our young people, please visit our Public Information Page.
