A non-regulatory special district to the State of California. Solano Resource Conservation District (RCD) was originally formed in 1956 to provide flood protection in the Ulatis watershed. Today we work closely with the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) and wide variety of other partners throughout the County on a watershed scale. In 2000 we changed our name to reflect this broader mission.
We’re proud of our ability to work with diverse groups of willing stakeholders to develop ground-up solutions to local resource issues. We partner with private citizens, local, regional, state and federal government agencies, research institutions, non-profits and private sector organizations to design and implement large and small ecosystem restoration programs, habitat enhancement projects, and watershed-based environmental education for kids and adults. We offer County residents conservation planning and watershed coordination services to help people manage their natural resources as individuals and in groups
The RCD is guided by a volunteer Board of Directors appointed by the County Board of Supervisors. District programming is implemented by staff who provide specialized expertise, education and experience to help develop durable solutions to conservation challenges.
We provide direct assistance to Solano County farmers and landowners who work 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 County and region to implement watershed programs with local and regional benefits.
