Utility Scale Conservation


This historic conservation of the PG&E Watershed Lands, one of the largest private landholdings in California, was made possible by engaged regulators, a willing utility company, and professional land trust partners taking on a unique opportunity to provide impactful public benefits to the citizens of California. The partnerships that grew from the effort are rich and enduring, and were a challenge to develop over two decades. 


We hope that the lessons learned from this landscape scale conservation effort can benefit others who endeavor to accomplish similar projects. A detailed description of the process, challenges, and results of the PG&E Land Conservation Commitment is included in the Stewardship Council's Final Report available for download below, in addition to the Land Conservation Plan Volumes 1-3 that are also linked below.
