Welcome to the Nevada County Resource Conservation District's (NCRCD) website.  Within the pages of this site you will find answers to your questions, seminars to attend, links to more information, and people to contact when reading about it just isn’t enough.

So, what are your resource concerns?  Nevada County agriculture?  The drought?  Controlling invasive plants and weeds? Wildlife habitat improvement?  Vegetation management on your property?  Forest health and tree diseases?  We can help you with all these things and more

The NCRCD offers conservation seminars and workshops throughout the year on conservation issues important to Nevada County and western Sierra County landowners.  We sponsor educational and outreach events, spearheaded the Ag in the Classroom Farm Day event, have an Advisory Visit Program and a Manure Exchange Program, participate in 'Ag-Sperience' at the Nevada County Fair, sponsor local students to attend Range Camp, sponsor the Speak-Off Contest for our local high school students, and partner with a wide variety of organizations on natural resource conservation.

 

Our office also has great planning tools (such as soil surveys) and other information that can help you determine if your property can accommodate your planned uses.  We recognize the value of grazing to reduce fire hazard and to promote and maintain plant and wildlife diversity and have an equipment loan program where landowners can borrow hand tools such as a soil sampler, weed wrench, pond rake, and a seed/fertilizer spreader as well as a Minimum Till Drill for rent.

The NCRCD is here to help with all your land management needs.  Call, e-mail, or stop by for more information.
