Sutter County Resource Conservation District is a special district formed under Division 9 of the California Public Resources Code. We work closely with farmers, ranchers, partners, and the community to get conservation on the ground in the Yuba-Sutter area. We are governed by a 5 member board of local landowners who understand the agricultural and environmental concerns facing the Yuba-Sutter area. Our staff is all involved in the agricultural world and cares deeply for the community they live and work in. Therefore, thew work we do is important! We do on the ground projects, educational programs, provide techincal workshops,  coordinate workgroups, and much more! Stay tuned for a list of past projects and programs that give a broad idea of what the SCRCD has done.
