In support of thriving local communities, landscapes, and economies, we work with Resource Conservation Districts, state and federal agencies, policy makers, and citizens to ensure the resilience and health of California's water, soil, wildlife habitat, and other natural resources — today and for generations to come.
Notes from the field
On California’s North Coast, Humboldt County RCD is the primary agency working on the renowned Salt River Watershed restoration project. In Southern California, Coachella Valley RCD works directly with producers in underserved communities to increase irrigation efficiency.
RCDs are working regionally to improve water quality, water quantity, wildlife habitat, and access to clean water for communities.
CARCD is the lead partner on a $10 million USDA Regional Conservation Partnership Program (RCPP) project to address the state’s tree mortality crisis in the Pacific Southwest.
