S.D. Bechtel, Jr. Foundation
NFWF and the S.D. Bechtel, Jr. Foundation have worked together since 1997 to protect and restore important habitat for wildlife in California. Current funding supports NFWF's Western Water Program in California, which focuses on balancing freshwater flows for fish, wildlife, and human uses. In the past, the S. D. Bechtel, Jr. Foundation has also provided support for PG&E’s Nature Restoration Trust, which strengthens local capacity, provides environmental education, and encourages community involvement in conservation efforts, as well as the Pacific Grassroots Salmonid Initiative.
