Sierra Resource Conservation Districtupdated: June 2010
The mission and function of the SIERRA RESOURCE CONSERVATION DISTRICT is to take available technical, financial and educational resources whatever their source and focus or coordinate them at the local level to meet the present and future natural resource needs of the local land user.

To accomplish this, SRCD maintains working relationships with Federal, State and County Agencies and Departments, non-profit organizations, educational institutions which have natural resource duties and responsibilities under law, and with public and private landowners to save the basic resources, soil, water, and air of the state from unreasonable and economically preventable waste and destruction.
Because of the status of the Resource Conservation District under state and federal laws, the District can call upon numerous state and federal agencies for technical expertise, funding and cost-sharing, in addition to County resources. Private lands and the protection and conservation of critical natural resources on private lands are greatly affected by the policies and practices of the State and Federal agencies. Most effective conservation practices will involve both the public and private land ownerships.The SRCD can and does act as a liaison between the private landowner and a multitude of land use programs to meet natural resource objectives.

The Sierra Resource Conservation District (SRCD) encompasses approximately 3063 square miles (1,960,248 acres) . The area is over 50% of the total acreage of Fresno County (3,817,025). The SRCD is bounded on the north by the Fresno-Madera County line; on the east by the Fresno-Mono and Fresno-Inyo County lines; on the south by the Fresno-Tulare Co line with a small portion of the North east corner of Tulare Co and the Sequoia National Park Boundary; and on the west by Blackstone Avenue, Herndon Avenue, Fowler Avenue, and Jensen Avenue as they intersect with each other, and also includes the campus of California State University Fresno (CSUF). There are three Indian Rancherias within the district
