California Association of Resource Conservation Districts cover
Mission The California Association of Resource Conservation Districts’ (CARCDs’) mission is to support and enhance the effectiveness of local Resource Conservation Districts’ (RCDs’) implementation of strong, locally-led conservation and stewardship of natural resources and agriculture in California.
Description RCDs are a leader in on-the-ground conservation efforts. The 98 districts statewide are the center of locally led conservation in their communities and accomplish thousands of practical, hands-on conservation projects every year. Often these projects involve agriculture and private land, but we also accomplish much more.

Typical projects include:
Water conservation
Watershed protection
Creek restoration
Stream bank restoration
Habitat improvement
Fish passage
Hedgerow plantings
Community education
Grower workshops
Native plantings
Creek clean-ups
Education of agriculturists on better and new environmental practices particularly around water conservation
Classroom visits
Fire prevention projects
Fire prevention education
Technical assistance to agriculturists
Watershed Management

RCDs are special districts that are a good example of strong local government. We are responsive and accountable to our communities to promote local conservation goals. Since most RCDs do not receive tax payer funding, we bring millions of dollars to local communities through conservation projects funded mainly through grants and private contributions. Those RCDs that do receive tax dollars return every dollar back to their communities 10 fold.

We are your partner in local conservation and agriculture.
