California RCDs Begin Statewide Program to Increase Climate Resilience and Support California’s Pollinators and Wildlife
The California Association of Resource Conservation Districts (CARCD) announced the recent award of a block grant from the Wildlife Conservation Board (WCB) to CARCD that will enable Resource Conservation Districts (RCDs) across the state to carry out projects adding habitat and sequestering carbon. CARCD will administer the $19.4M grant – one of WCB’s largest awards ever- passing through 99% of the funds to over 40 RCDs who will implement monarch/pollinator and other wildlife habitat projects on private and public lands and work with landowners and managers to implement carbon farm practices on farms and rangelands between now and early 2027. Expert partner organizations included in the grant strengthen the collaborative effort and amplify its overall impacts, providing RCDs support as needed for planning, monitoring and related activities and increasing the availability of native plant materials needed for the projects.
