Santa Cruz Natural Resource Conservation District

Known in various parts of the country as “soil and water conservation districts,” “resource conservation districts,” “natural resource districts,” “land conservation committees” and similar names, they share a single mission: to coordinate assistance from all available sources -- public and private, local, state and federal -- in an effort to develop locally driven solutions to natural resource concerns.

Conservation districts help:
  • Implement farm conservation practices to keep soil in the fields and out of waterways;
  • Conserve and restore wetlands, which purify water and provide habitat for birds, fish and numerous other animals.
  • Protect groundwater resources;
  • Plant trees and other land cover to hold soil in place, clean the air, provide cover for wildlife and beautify neighborhoods;
  • Help developers and homeowners manage the land in an environmentally sensitive manner; and reach out to communities and schools to teach the value of natural resources and encourage conservation efforts.
