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
In 2015 the Valley Fire burned over 76,000 acres in Lake County and was the third largest fire in California at the time. After the fire, Lake County RCD worked to distribute seedlings which were planted in 2017 and 2018 to help jumpstart reforestation and soil health efforts.
Featuring four days of trainings, breakout sessions, panels, and networking opportunities, the Annual CARCD Conference is a highly anticipated event that brings together California’s diverse conservation community.
CARCD has been building momentum and developing partnerships related to soil health and greenhouse gas emissions reductions. At the same time, RCDs around the state have begun creating and implementing Carbon Farm Plans in partnership with the Carbon Cycle Institute (CCI).
