East Merced Resource Conservation Districtupdated: June 2012
Our Mission

Promote the conservation of natural resources for the benefit of the general public and landowners through partnerships.

 Today RCDs work in urban areas as well as with farmers and ranchers on agriculture related concerns.  California's size and geographical diversity -- along with an ever-growing population- make natural resources stewardship a great challenge in the Golden State.

Goals include:
Preserve and enhance the river and floodplain environment along the Lower Merced River (from Merced Falls bridge to San Joaquin River);
Preserve and enhance rangelands/Vernal Pool grasslands in Eastern Merced County;
Address water quality issues in the crop and dairy-land regions of Eastern Merced County;
Preserve agriculture lands;
Protect surface water and groundwater quality and quantity;
Protect and enhance soil health and air quality;
Develop positive relationships with local, state, and federal legislators;
Promote awareness of natural resources issues unique to Merced County;
Develop/distribute technical information on wetland resources and wildlife habitat; and
Support management and education efforts for noxious weed control.
