The RCD works closely with the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS). Through a cooperative agreement, the NRCS works directly with local RCDs, providing technical assistance, empowering landowners with best management practices on their lands, and providing financial support of locally led conservation.
The US-LT RCD is located in the NRCS Templeton Field Office as well as the USDA Farm Service Agency. The Templeton Field Office staff serves the San Luis Obispo County region. NRCS provides office space directly to our District as well as phone service, vehicle use, and access to an extensive technical library and respository of maps and aerial photography.
The US-LT RCD would not be in the position it is today without the generous support of the USDA NRCS. We greatly appreciate our NRCS conservation partners.
