Napa County Resource Conservation District

Napa County Resource Conservation District

What They Do:

Help the community conserve, protect, and restore our environment in a landscape that supports agriculture, urban living, and wild spaces. Promote cooperation, sound science, and youth engagement as key ways to improve the resiliency of our watersheds for the benefit of future generations.

The Resource Conservation District (RCD) helps Napa County residents achieve environmental goals by providing education, one-on-one guidance, funding for projects, and access to real-world examples of conservation practices.

Water-wise vineyards and home gardens, rainwater capture, erosion-proof dirt roads, pollinator-friendly plantings, oak plantings, and improving stream habitat for wildlife are just some of the projects that we help people complete.

RCD also conducts in-depth monitoring to understand our watersheds’ health. We provide in-class and outdoor education that connects youth with opportunities to make a difference for our environment and grow their understanding of Napa County ecology.

Other Ways to Help:

You can help Napa County RCD as a volunteer or participant in the following programs/activities:

  • Coastal Clean-up Day
  • Earth Day Clean-up
  • Oak Planting Days
  • Oak Maintenance Days
  • Martin Luther King Day at our Demonstration Vineyard
  • Native Oak Acorn Collection in Fall
  • Summer Internships
  • Fish Trap Data Collection

You can also help by being an observant community member. Notify us if you see:

  • Significant trash in our environment
  • Salmon or steelhead in the Napa River

Business Partners:

Our thanks to The Monkey Flower Group for supporting our participation in the Give!Guide by providing donors a special opportunity.


Thanks to the RCD, I've developed a passion for nature and helping the environment, and confidence in myself. Helping RCD mulch oak trees and teach kids about water pollution are experiences I won't forget.
