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.

National Honey Bee Day 2021

Almost 90% of plant species rely on pollinators to reproduce and honey bees are some of the most efficient pollinators. Unfortunately, the number of managed honey bee colonies in the U.S. has declined over the past 60 years. August 21st is National Honey Bee Day. Let's do something nice for our little friends and grow a pollinator friendly garden with many wildflowers while avoiding pesticides.
