What we do

The RCD works with communities to voluntarily conserve, protect, and restore natural resources in a landscape that supports agriculture, urban areas, and wild lands.

We provide technical assistance, educational programs, monitoring and assessment services, and grant funding to help land managers meet their conservation goals.
