PG&E's Nature Restoration Trust
PG&E provides major funding for the Nature Restoration Trust to bring together public and private resources to conserve and enhance the natural habitats of fish and wildlife. Our support is part of the company's broader commitment to foster environmental stewardship in our communities in areas such as education, renewables, energy efficiency and local Earth Day projects. Together with our partners, we will help to ensure our neighborhoods, parks and recreation areas remain clean, safe and viable for future generations.
Partnering to Protect California Wildlife
To help protect California's diverse wildlife, PG&E established the Nature Restoration Trust with the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF). Working in partnership, the organizations provide grants to community-based restoration projects that benefit wildlife, fish and plant species in Northern and Central California. Additionally, the Trust seeks to fund projects that foster local stewardship of natural resources through youth education, training and outreach.
