“We were impressed with your professionalism that began immediately with your on-time arrival. Your combined knowledge and exceptional technical expertise put us at ease. Thank you for the patience you afforded us as you inspected the property, explaining to us the many things we can expect, obstacles that could arise, and problems that often occur.

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.
