Dear Georgetown Divide Residents,
Your Resource Conservation District is a grassroots governmental organization that advises and assists
individual landowners and public agencies in planning
and implementation of conservation practices for the protection, restoration, or development of land, water, and related natural resources. The district is a non-enforcement, non-regulatory, self-governed district relying on active, voluntary support from landowners to guarantee the success of its conservation work.
As a local government entity with an elected Board of Directors, your RCD can work with any local, state or federal agency through simple cooperative agreements. Many times the RCD can get conservation activities on the ground faster, cheaper and with greater local sensitivity than any other governmental entity.
Your district is involved in erosion control assistance, agricultural lands assistance, forestry and vegetation management, environmental policy and compliance, wildlife habitat improvement and restoration, wildfire protection, education, gardening demonstration and education
programs, watershed and water quality assessment & monitoring, park improvements, and more.
The creation of Resource Conservation Districts was in direct response to the economic and ecologic disasters of the 1930ís. This RCD was established in 1953 by the El Dorado Board of Supervisors under Division 9 of the California
Public Resources Code. Your Board serves a four-year term without compensation.
This website is presented and paid for as a public service to residents of the Divide by Richard Milner,
a board member and secretary of the Georgetown Divide Resource Conservation District.
