Colusa County Resource Conservation District

The mission of the CCRCD is to protect, conserve and restore natural resources through locally led education and implementation activities that supports a healthy environment and provides economic sustainability through wise land use.

Originally Colusa County had two Districts that were voluntarily organized by landowners. The Stonyford Resource Conservation District (Western portion of Colusa County) was formed in 1956 and the Colusa Resource Conservation District (Eastern Colusa County) was organized in 1959. In 1996 the two separate districts merged to better serve the needs of Colusa County, becoming the Colusa County RCD (CCRCD). The District is governed by a seven-member board that is made up of local landowners and managers that are familiar with the needs and conditions of Colusa County. The Directors serve without pay and are appointed to four year terms of office by the Colusa County Board of Supervisors. The purpose of the Board is to identify resource concerns within Colusa County, representing soil, water, and wildlife conservation interests of rural landowners and managers requesting assistance. The USDA Natural Resource Conservation Service provides technical assistance for the District’s projects.

The CCRCD focuses their efforts on:

  • Promoting resource management and conservation practices that will improve the health of Colusa County Watersheds
  • Supporting measures that provide for the best use of the land while sustaining our natural resources and local economy
  • Providing conservation education to insure Colusa County’s natural resources will be valued and protected in the future
