Antelope Valley Resource Conservation District
AVRCD encompasses approximately 1.65 million acres bounded on the east by the San Bernardino County Line; the north by southeast Kern County; the west by the Ventura County line; & the south by the urban Los Angeles/Santa Clarita area & Angeles Crest.

The AVRCD assists the communities we serve to manage and enhance their natural resources through education, leadership, and expertise in science-based conservation.

RCDs are empowered to conserve resources within their districts by implementing projects on public and private lands and to educate landowners and the public about resource conservation. Beyond this, RCD are given the right to form associations to coordinate resource conservation efforts on a larger level. The core functions of a district revolve around its right to use diverse means to further resource conservation within their districts

General Information
The AVRCD is a special district of the State of California and is largely dependent upon grants and contracts for its programs. The District is allocated a limited property tax increment share from Los Angeles, Kern, and Ventura counties for fixed costs.

The Antelope Valley Resource Conservation District has a nursery at 100th Street West on Avenue I. Its primary purpose is to raise plant stock for conservation efforts --- to plant areas affected by fire or flood, to eliminate dust, reclaim erosion, or act as windbreaks. The nursery also sells trees, bushes, and flower seeds to the public, particularly native varieties, but also the wide variety of landscaping plants found at any nursery. There is an education component of our charter, and the arboretum is a resource for educating the public. One of the objectives of the incoming AVRCD board is to increase the nursery/arboretum's visibility in the Valley.
