The Pacific Forest and Watershed Lands Stewardship Council (Stewardship Council) was established in 2004 following the settlement of PG&E's bankruptcy and is responsible for the disposition and conservation of PG&E's watershed lands. There are a number of planning units in the Feather River region, and the Bucks Lake Planning Unit is one of four pilot projects in the state that are the first areas to go through the development of a final Land Conservation and Conveyance Plan.
More information on the Stewardship Council and the Feather River planning units is available on the Stewardship Council website.
