Sonoma Resource Conservation District

Partners and Funders

Operating and program funds are drawn from local taxes, grants, partnerships and local donations. The RCD has been extremely successful in leveraging minimal local tax funds to bring in financing for natural resource projects from sources such as the Natural Resources Conservation Service, National Fish and Wildlife Foundation, State Water Resources Control Board, California State Coastal Conservancy, California Department of Fish and Wildlife, Sonoma County Water Agency, Sonoma County Agricultural Preservation and Open Space District, CalEPA, California Department of Conservation, City of Santa Rosa, and others.
