Seventy percent of the land in the United States is privately owned, making stewardship by private landowners absolutely critical to the health of our Nation’s environment. Resource Conservation Districts (RCDs) are Special Districts organized under Division 9 of the California Public Resources Code to manage and conduct soil and water conservation, erosion control and prevention, and wildlife restoration projects. RCDs work closely with the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) assisting land users to conserve natural resources.
The SBRCD has been working with willing local landowners in San Benito County on conservation improvements since 1941. The San Benito Resource Conservation District (SBRCD) provides technical and educational services for natural resource conservation and agriculture enhancement. The SBRCD collaborates with many partners including private landowners, local, state and federal agencies and other organizations to develop and implement various conservation and agricultural strategies.
The SBRCD has been facilitating the Upper Pajaro River Watershed Partners in Restoration Permit Coordination Program, Livestock and Land Program, Pajaro River Watershed Coordination and Small Acre Stewardship over the last several years.
