Antelope Valley Resource Conservation Districtlast updated: March 2017
The Mission of the Antelope Valley Resource Conservation District is to promote conservation and restoration of natural resources for our area by providing plant materials, educational programs, and expertise in conservation.
The AVRCD is a special district of the State of California and is largely dependent upon grants and contracts for its programs. The District is allocated a limited property tax increment share from Los Angeles, Kern, and Ventura counties for fixed costs.

The Antelope Valley Resource Conservation District has a nursery at 100th Street West on Avenue I. Its primary purpose is to raise plant stock for conservation efforts --- to plant areas affected by fire or flood, to eliminate dust, reclaim erosion, or act as windbreaks. The nursery also sells trees, bushes, and flower seeds to the public, particularly native varieties, but also the wide variety of landscaping plants found at any nursery. There is an education component of our charter, and the arboretum is a resource for educating the public. One of the objectives of the incoming AVRCD board is to increase the nursery/arboretum's visibility in the Valley.
