ABOUT THE STEWARDSHIP COUNCIL
The Pacific Forest and Watershed Lands Stewardship Council (Stewardship Council) is a collaborative land conservation and youth investment nonprofit foundation. Funded with $100 million from Pacific Gas & Electric Company ratepayer funds, our mandate includes evaluating and providing recommendations for the conservation of over 140,000 acres of watershed lands currently owned by Pacific Gas & Electric Company (PG&E) which are spread across 21 California counties. The Stewardship Council receives no other funding.
We have been working since 2004 to achieve our mission. In 2012, we launched an environmental enhancement grantmaking program to fund projects on PG&E watershed lands. The Stewardship Council plans to sunset once its mission is completely, likely in 2022.
