Descrição

ORGANIZATIONAL BACKGROUND

The Lake County Resource Conservation District (LCRCD) is dedicated to the locally-led, long term sustainable conservation and stewardship of natural resources and agriculture in Lake County, California. The Lake County Fire Safe Council (LCFSC) is a subsidiary of the LCRCD, with a mission to empower Lake County residents and businesses with the information, knowledge, and support to protect their family and property from wildfire. LCRCD is a non-regulatory, Special District of the State of California that provides conservation assistance to private landowners across Lake County. RCDs combine the accountability and transparency of a public agency with the flexibility and non-regulatory approach of a non-profit organization. This nimbleness allows RCDs to adapt to the ever-changing needs of our communities, build trusted relationships, and act as the crucial bridge that connects individuals with state and federal partners and programs. Both the LCRCD and LCFSC works collaboratively with the Lake County governmental bodies, State and Federal agencies, and non-governmental organizations. Be part of a growing team to build environmental stewardship programs for Lake County.
