Our Mission

The mission of the Mendocino County Resource Conservation District is to conserve, protect and restore wild and working landscapes to enhance the health of the water, soil, and forests in Mendocino County.





Mendocino County Resource Conservation District (MCRCD) teamed up with Happy Day Farms to produce an 8-minute video, based on the Watershed Best Management Practices for Cannabis Growers and Other Rural Gardeners guide. Featuring gorgeous footage of a biodiverse farm, the video outlines “what it means to be a good steward of the land.” Check it out at https://vimeo.com/376043408.The 2018 version of the print guide is available for download, in English and Spanish, at www.mcrcd.org/publications.

Landowner Testimonial

“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. We look forward to continuing to work with you over the coming months to achieve our shared ambition: fire safety, for ourselves and our community.”

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.
