About Us

People depend on soil, water, air, plants, and animals to survive. These natural resources provide our communities with food, shelter, clothing, economies, and recreation. The Upper Salinas-Las Tablas Resource Conservation District (US-LT RCD) provides technical assistance, education and resources to help agricultural, rural and urban communities preserve these natural elements while supporting robust land productivity.

Serving North San Luis Obispo County including portions of Monterey and Kern Counties since 1951, the US-LT RCD is a non-regulatory, not-for-profit organization. The RCD has established an assortment of services and programs to serve the need of every kind of land manager in our region. Farmers, ranchers, and residents rely upon the RCD for entire project navigation – from planning to design, permitting to installation – we provide the continuum of assistance to complete it.

The US-LT RCD was established in 1951 as a special local district, authorized under Division 9 of the California Public Resources Code. RCDs are political subdivisions of the State of California, set up to be locally governed agencies with their own locally appointed or elected board of directors.
