What We Do

RCDs are a leader in on-the-ground conservation efforts. As one of the 98 districts statewide, we are the center of locally led conservation in our community. We accomplish many practical, hands-on conservation projects every year. Often these projects involve agriculture and private land, but we also accomplish much more.

Typical projects include:

  • Water conservation
  • Watershed protection
  • Creek restoration
  • Stream bank restoration
  • Habitat improvement
  • Fish passage
  • Hedgerow plantings
  • Community education
  • Grower workshops
  • Native plantings
  • Creek clean-ups
  • Education of agriculturists on better and new environmental practices particularly around water conservation
  • Classroom visits
  • Technical assistance to agriculturists
  • Watershed Management

RCDs are special districts that are a good example of strong local government. We are responsive and accountable to our communities to promote local conservation goals. Since we do not receive tax payer funding, we bring millions of dollars to local communities through conservation projects funded mainly through grants and private contributions.

We are your partner in local conservation and agriculture.
