Mission Statement

The Mission of the Contra Costa Resource Conservation District is to Facilitate Conservation and Stewardship of the Natural Resources in Contra Costa County.

Contra Costa RCD’s current program areas are Agricultural Working Lands and Watershed Conservation. We work with local partners to creatively address challenges, including sea-level rise, wildland fires, trash and illegal dumping, and invasive plants.
