USDA Natural Resource Conservation Service
The CRCD maintains a close relationship with the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) who provide similar assistance. The CRCD share an office, sometimes staff and work on many programs and projects together. This relationship is especially important because the USDA does not provide NRCS support to an area without a local RCD, except for the administration of federally mandated programs.

Other Organizations & Agencies We have Worked With
One of our founding principles is diverse community partnerships. We are in a unique position to benefit our community by acting as a facilitator – a non-regulatory neutral third party with the unique ability to investigate, understand and attract funding and expertise to address issues related to natural resources, the environment, and agriculture. This role requires us to reach out to diverse agencies, organizations and individuals and to build strong, lasting relationships.
We wish to acknowledge our partners and thank them for their financial, technical, informational, and inspirational contributions to the wise management and use of our natural resources. We especially thank our private landowners and land managers, for their continued involvement and trust.
