“Phil has a strong skillset of previous experiences that include management as executive director of a similar organization, fundraising, restoration, and strategic planning. He brings a lot of enthusiasm to this position, and we’re excited about the future of Putah Creek Council as we grow with Phil as the critical part of our team,” said Brian Bellamy, Chair of the Board.

Stevens has been a passionate conservation professional for over two decades. His earlier work with The Nature Conservancy included leadership positions responsible for securing donor funding as well as program development. Later he led the Urban Creeks Council, a Bay-area nonprofit dedicated to protecting and restoring urban streams.

As executive director for that organization, with a comparable mission to Putah Creek Council, he dealt with many similar tasks of project development, managing restoration activities, coordination with other agencies, community outreach, and fundraising. His conservation work continued as associate director for Marine Applied Research and Exploration followed by forming and becoming principal of the firm Overstory Land Stewardship, which focuses on ecologically sensitive land management.

Stevens has followed the work of Putah Creek Council for some time and is very excited to become the new executive director.

“Putah Creek Council has a remarkable record of achievement over the years. I feel tremendously honored to have a chance to contribute to the organization’s continuing success,” said Stevens.

Putah Creek Council’s mission is to support regional ecosystems through advocacy, education, and community-based stewardship. To learn more, visit www.putahcreekcouncil.org or www.facebook.com/putahcreekcouncil/.
