Resource Conservation Districts: RCD Monterey County

Each Resource Conservation District is a special district independently governed by a Board of Directors, within boundaries set by the state. These special districts are designated to implement and monitor resource conservation projects across private and public land [2]. The mission of these special districts is to educate the public, including landowners about resource conservation in each area, as locally governed agencies. According to Division 9 of the Public Resources Code, RCD's prioritize:

  • Agricultural land conservation
  • Conservation education
  • Forest stewardship
  • Fuels management
  • Irrigation management
  • Recreational land restoration
  • Soil and water management on non-agricultural lands
  • Urban resource conservation
  • Watershed planning and management
  • Water conservation
  • Water quality protection and enhancement
  • Wetland conservation
  • Wildlife habitat enhancement
