Napa County Resource Conservation District (Napa RCD) was established in 1945 as a special district of the State of California to help farmers and ranchers in Napa County tackle erosion and other problems on their land. As natural resource issues change, we continue to evolve.
Today, we help our community achieve conservation goals by providing technical assistance, educational programs, monitoring programs, and funding sources on issues ranging from fisheries to forest health, soil management, water conservation and quality, and more.
We are governed by a locally-appointed Board of Directors. Our leaders are also your neighbors — they live in the district and understand what the local resource needs and concerns are, which helps steer Napa RCD in the right direction. Our team consists of conservation scientists and outreach and administrative professionals who are skilled at developing, implementing, and monitoring many types of projects. Our Napa RCD works at many scales — from the individual landowner to entire watersheds
