Mission Statement

The mission of the RCD is to conserve and improve our natural resources, integrating the demand for environmental quality with the needs of agricultural and urban users.

Description

The RCD provides direct assistance to Monterey County farmers and landowners working with us voluntarily to protect their soil, water, and natural habitats. We also partner with agricultural and natural resource protection organizations and agencies throughout the Central Coast.

The RCD of Monterey County was established in 1942 as a non-regulatory special local district, authorized under Division 9 of California Public Resources Code.

Funding for all RCD projects and ongoing operations are derived entirely from grants and contracts. The RCD does not have a tax base.

The RCD is guided by a Board of Directors who are appointed by the county board of supervisors to serve voluntarily and represent a broad spectrum of experience including farming, ranching, financial and non-profit land conservancy management. depending upon available grant funds, the RCD employs multiple staff members with diverse technical backgrounds to support implementation of the RCD mission.
