Alameda County Conservation Partnership

The Alameda County Resource Conservation District (ACRCD) and the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) collaborate as the Conservation Partnership to serve as the lead conservation agency in Alameda County.  We provide technical and educational services for natural resource conservation and agriculture enhancement. The Partnership collaborates with many partners including private landowners, local, state and federal agencies and other organizations to develop and implement various conservation and agricultural strategies.

The fundamental principles of the working landscape, conservation and enhancement, and of the local agricultural heritage, provide focus for the Partnership's work. For example, NRCS cost-share programs provide financial assistance to install practices that not only improve conservation values but also enhance the viability of the agricultural landowner, in turn fostering continuance of the farming and ranching heritage in the County.
