San Mateo County Resource Conservation District
Your Local Partner in Conservation and Agriculture


The RCD is a non-regulatory special district to help people protect, conserve, and restore natural resources through information, education, and technical assistance programs.  With your tax-deductible support we can continue to maintain the beauty of the coastside through the development of land stewardship ethics that result in long term sustainability of our rich and diverse natural resource heritage.


There is a public meeting of the Board of Directors on the third Thursday of each month at 6:30 pm, unless otherwise posted.  The agenda and materials are available at least 72 hours in advance.
