Tahoe Resource Conservation District Updated:03/2017

The Tahoe Resource Conservation District is one of nearly 3000 Conservation Districts across the country helping people protect land, water, forests, wildlife, and related natural resources. The California State Legislature formed the Tahoe RCD in 1974 under Division 9 of the California Public Resources Code. The Tahoe RCD is a non-regulatory, grant-funded, not-for-profit agency that works in the Lake Tahoe Basin.

The Tahoe RCD, along with our many partners, obtains grant funding and private donations to support all aspects of conservation issues which include, but are not limited to: water quality, wildlife habitat, fire defensible space, sustainable recreation, water conservation and community enhancement. Current programs at the Tahoe RCD focus on stormwater management, single-family residence Best Management Practices (BMPs), invasive species control and prevention, and conservation landscaping initiatives.

The mission of the Tahoe Resource Conservation District is to promote the conservation, stewardship and knowledge of the Lake Tahoe Region’s natural resources by providing leadership and innovative environmental services to all stakeholders.
