Big Horn Basin WY RC&D Area

The Big Horn Basin Resource Conservation & Development (RC&D) Council promotes conservation and natural resources development in the Big Horn Basin area.

The RC&D Program is unique in that it supports balance between helping people protect and develop their natural, social and economic resources while improving their area’s economy, environment and quality of life. The balance begins by partnering an RC&D Coordinator from the USDA-Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) with a local RC&D Council. The RC&D council consists of public and private sector sponsors and local organizations that represent a diverse cross section of community interests. Sponsors include county and city governments, conservation districts, economic districts, Tribal governments, and interested private organizations in the local area.
Each RC&D group is as different as the communities, conservation districts and individuals that they serve. This grassroots involvement is highly valuable in shaping decision making at the local level. The Council, with public involvement, identifies community concerns, establishes goals and objectives, develops strategies and implements their annual work plan through guidance specified in the Council’s five-year Area Plan.
