About Resource Conservation Districts

(Section 9151 et seq. State Public Resources Code)

A resource conservation district may conduct research relating to the conservation of soil and water resources, make improvements on public lands, disseminate conservation information, assist private landowners, develop soil and water conservation plans, and establish standards of cropping, tillage and range practices on private lands as a condition to expenditures by the district of any funds on those lands. A district is intended to include lands that are generally of value for agricultural purposes and lands that need control of runoff, soil erosion and related problems. The territory need not be contiguous and may include lands in one or more counties. The governing board consists of five members, each a landowner or designated agent, elected at large.
