Napa County Resource Conservation District
What We Do:
Help our community care for land, water, soil, and wildlife. Support resiliency of and connections among agriculture, urban living, and wild spaces. Promote cooperation, sound science, and youth engagement as key ways to improve the health and beauty of our watersheds for future generations.
We help Napa County residents conserve, protect, and restore land, water, and wildlife by providing education, one-on-one guidance, funding for projects, and real-world demonstrations of conservation practices. Water-wise vineyards and home gardens, rainwater capture, erosion-proof dirt roads, pollinator-friendly plantings, oak plantings, and enhancing stream habitat for wildlife are just some of the projects that we help enact and promote within our community. We also conduct in-depth monitoring to understand the health of our three watersheds. We provide in-class and outdoor education that connects youth with opportunities to make a difference for our environment and grow their understanding of Napa County ecology.
