Alameda County Resource Conservation District

The mission of the Alameda County Resource Conservation District is to provide leadership in the County and region in natural resources conservation and agricultural enhancement through partnerships, education, outreach, resource services and technical expertise.

The Alameda County Resource Conservation District (ACRCD) is one of the top conservation agencies in Alameda County.  The ACRCD provides technical and educational services for natural resource conservation and enhancement.  We seek opportunities to demonstrate progressive conservation techniques and facilitate the use of locally-approved and voluntary solutions to resource and agricultural challenges throughout the County.  The ACRCD collaborates with key experts, partners and staff to offer an extensive skill set, applying innovative and practical conservation tools.  The ACRCD provides technical and project management support for activities such as the development of resource management plans, natural resources inventories, baseline studies, habitat restoration, planning and implementation.  We also provide assistance to local agencies, production agriculture, and wild and working lands for a variety of tasks—ranging from coordinating funding, to managing stakeholder relationships, to implementation of on-the-ground projects.

The ACRCD is funded through many sources, predominantly grant and contract projects with a small  portion coming from a property tax assessed within the ACRCD’s service area.  The ACRCD does not include northern Alameda County.  It reflects the agricultural lands of 1972 and excludes the northern urban areas and the 1972 downtowns of Pleasanton and Livermore.  

The ACRCD is an independent, non-regualtory special district within the state of California, locally governed by an independent, appointed board of directors.  They are authorized by Division 9 of the California Public Resources Code to provide resource conservation leadership within district boundaries. Resource Conservation Districts are empowered to conserve and enhance agricultural and natural resources within their districts on public and private lands, to educate their constituents, and to collaborate with other organizations to achieve their missions.  

RCDs enable USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service to provide Farm Bill cost-share programs and other technical assistance for local landowners and users.
