Stewardship

About the Stewardship Workforce Training Program Database

An interactive database offering information about stewardship programs across the state. This publicly available database can be used to identify and promote training, certification, and collaboration opportunities to care for biodiversity and support ecosystem resilience.

This database is designed to link individuals and organizations to training, certification, and collaboration opportunities that will prepare them for jobs within California’s environmental workforce sector. This resource was created by the California Biodiversity Network’s Stewardship Roundtable, a community of practice working on land and water stewardship of protected area networks and working lands in California.

This database was made possible by MIG and the University of California Agriculture and Natural Resource (UC ANR) Informatics and GIS Program, and funded by the Gordon & Betty Moore Foundation

To find programs: Select any stewardship focus criteria you are interested in on the left and matching programs will be listed on the right. Click on any program listed on the right for more details including a map location.

A convening of Tribal leaders, Indigenous culture bearers, and public land management agencies from the places now known as the United States, Canada, and Mexico took place in February 2024.

This event was a partnership of the California Biodiversity Network and the Federated Indians of Graton Rancheria (FIGR), with grants from the Gordon & Betty Moore Foundation and Resources Legacy Fund.
