San Mateo County Resource Conservation District Logo

Practical solutions. Real results.

Local and accountable.

Helping people help the land.

Since 1939.


San Mateo County is a hotspot of biological diversity and home to over 40 species of plants and animals at risk of becoming extinct. Our work helps give them a fighting chance.


Water is one of the most significant forces shaping the future of California. We help ensure clean and reliable water in San Mateo County for fish, farms, and people who share the precious resource.


We work to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, remove greenhouse gases from the atmosphere, and prepare our community and wildlife habitat for resilience to extreme weather.


Agriculture is at the heart of coastal San Mateo County. Our services to farmers and ranchers help ensure viable local agriculture while also helping agriculture to be of service to the environment.
