The Environmental Committee works to protect the watershed and to educate the public on forestry issues, erosion control, hazardous waste, recycling, and other issues. We also monitor government policies and procedures.
PG&E is a high priority for the Environmental Committee due to its massive and destructive felling of trees to prevent wildfires when unsafe, unreliable, antiquated equipment is the fundamental cause of the fires. From working on legislation and a new Franchise Agreement for PG&E in the County to in-depth research and analysis to support work with agencies affecting PG&E and helping folks protect their trees from PG&E’s contractors, this keeps the group busy. We work with a State-wide Utility Wildfire Prevention Taskforce on these issues.
Your help is needed.

Earth Day is celebrated annually to acknowledge and honor the environmental movement’s achievements, raise awareness about issues important to Earth’s health, and inspire action toward sustainability and stewardship.
It reminds us of our responsibility to protect the planet and encourages communities to work together towards a common goal. Celebrating Earth Day every day can inspire meaningful action toward creating a more sustainable future.
While our planet’s health is a worldwide concern, we must recognize how to help our local communities’ environment. A big ‘first step’ in this process is to gain knowledge of local environmental challenges and solutions specific to our region. We can significantly impact our planet’s health and sustainability by taking grassroots action, starting with the places we call home.
There are many ways to celebrate Earth Day locally, every day. Here are a few ideas:
Remember, the most important thing is to take actions that make a difference in your support for the environment. Even small actions can make a big difference, so get involved and make Earth Day a meaningful event for San Lorenzo Valley and our Planet!
