California Association of Resource Conservation Districts (CARCD) continues the tradition of bringing together representatives from federal and state agencies, non-profits, private industries, farming communities, and resource conservation districts (RCDs) to share knowledge, build partnerships, and address urgent natural resource challenges. Experts will present and engage in conversations on climate-smart agriculture, the tree mortality crisis, community fire resilience, sustainable groundwater management, watershed health, social equity in conservation, and wildlife preservation.

The CARCD Annual Conference provides a unique opportunity for our partners and community members to connect directly with RCDs, which are recognized as the go-to hubs for conservation and have been implementing voluntary, locally-led conservation on public and private lands since 1937. Meaningful progress and recovery from all the challenges of 2020 & 2021 will require a collaborative scaling up of solutions, and we invite you to join us as we plan for the future.Zoom fatigue is real. To keep our attendees feeling fresh and engaged, our conference will feature interactive and conversational sessions on the most relevant conservation efforts. We have created a conference that will span the entire month of January. You will have the ability to choose between a single track which will include a 2-4 hour session each week along with the keynote and plenary sessions, or you can get access to the entire conference and pick the presentations that best fit your schedule.
