Central Sierra RC&D Council
Created in 1997, the Central Sierra Resource Conservation & Development has adopted the mission of providing economic and natural resource conservation aid to the people of Alpine, Amador, Calaveras, Tuolumne, and northern Mono Counties.
Our council is compiled of representative from many organizations and groups throughought the 5 counties served by the CSRC&D.
The CSRC&D has developed an aggressive program of work in the period following the RC&D's designation in 1998. The information here provides and overview of some of the projects that have been adopted into the CSRC&D Area Plan. Nine of the 33, shown were completed in 2005. The United States Department of Agriculture, provides in excess of $120,000 to the CSRC&D Area annually to aid with the implementation of the CSRC&D area projects. It has become apparent that multi county coordination of watershed treatment is needed and that the CSRC&D can accommodate this need. These are just some of the activities for which the CSRC&D has provided assistance. As of December of 2006, the Central Sierra RC&D council now has representatives from over 35 organizations throughout the five counties of Amador, Alpine, Calaveras, Mono, and Tuolumne, and contiues to adopt and implement projects as described in our "projects" page here on our website.

Sixteen Projects are planned for completion in 2006. The map shows some of the completed project locations from 2005 within the CSRC&D designated area. Projects are approved in concept as Candidate projects prior to funding or other limiting conditions. When funding and other conditions are solved, the project is adopted as a full project into the Annual Plan of Work.
