The Butte County Resource Conservation District is responsible for working with private landowners, non-government organizations and government agencies to implement natural resource conservation projects throughout the unincorporated areas of Butte County.  We have no discretionary budget; we fund all our programs through grants (i.e., competing with other organizations for state or federal aid) or contracts (i.e., fee-for-service work).

Pursuant to Division 9, section 9403.5 of the California Public Resources Code, we offer some services on a fee-for-service basis, Call us if you're a local agency and you need help with:

  • GIS services
  • Grant writing
  • Road or trail assessment
  • Irrigation use efficiency assessment
  • CEQA or NEPA document preparation
  • Biological surveys (botany, wildlife) and some archaeological surveys


Resource Conservation Districts are here to "fill in the gaps" between public and private, local and state and federal, non-profit and business organizations....all to protect our soil, water and natural diversity.
