Resource Conservation Districts

Resource Conservation Districts are special districts independently governed by an independent Board of Directors, within boundaries set by the state. They were established by Public Resources Code Division 9 [2] and are designated to implement and monitor resource conservation projects across private and public land [3]. The mission of these locally governed special districts is to educate the public and land owners about resource conservation in each area. In doing so, they provide an integral link to conservation programs and agencies on the local, state, and federal level. 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
