The Mission of the Contra Costa Resource Conservation District is to Facilitate Conservation and Stewardship of the Natural Resources in Contra Costa County.

COVID-19: We are monitoring the Coronavirus pandemic very closely, while following updates and guidance from the World Health Organization, plus the order from Contra Costa County Health Services to Shelter in Place during this difficult time.  Every precaution is being taken to ensure the health and safety of Contra Costa Resource Conservation District community, supporters, and staff. This directive has led us to cancel or postpone many of our upcoming events, and we will continue to observe the advice and orders from the State and County to gauge which events this will affect. Please return to this page periodically for updates on the status of CCRCD event(s). Please be safe and we look forward to seeing you all at future events.

Earth Week Wrap Up

It was a full week of Earth Day presentations, from tips and advice on Protecting Your Home From Wildfire with guests, Living Like Everyday is Earth Day from our Agriculture and new EcoStewards teams, to bringing you Live to the Rodeo Town-Wide Cleanup on Earth Day. We hope you were able to join us in these Zoom webinars and Live Facebook presentations. You can find them all here for your post Earth Day couch-surfing pleasure! To cap this off, please check out our Earth Day Wrap-Up discussion with the CCRCD staff regarding our thoughts on Earth Day and personal outlooks.

Teaming Up with Monarchs

Insect pollinators help us every day. One species that has experienced a crippling decline in recent years is the monarch butterfly.​ How can we help them?

"For most of history, man has had to fight nature to survive; in this century he is beginning to realize that, in order to survive, he must protect it."
