PG&E's Fong Wan presented a check to the California State Parks Foundation's Erika Pringsheim-Moore at Mt. Diablo State Park.

Volunteers installed split rail fencing, performed trail maintenance, cleared vegetation from the roads and rehabilitated the campgrounds in celebration of Earth Day.

Fong Wan, PG&E’s senior vice president of energy procurement, presented a ceremonial check for $225,000 to Erika Pringsheim-Moore, director of the Earth Day Program for the California State Parks Foundation.

Over the past decade, PG&E has contributed more than $1.2 million to the Foundation, which helps maintain and enhance California’s 278 state parks. During that time, PG&E volunteers have contributed more than 20,000 hours to restoration and cleanup activities.

PG&E officers Steve Malnight and Greg Kiraly also volunteered at Mt. Diablo.
