About Tahoe Resource Conservation District

Tahoe Resource Conservation District – Tahoe RCD


Tahoe Resource Conservation District (Tahoe RCD) is one of nearly 3000 Conservation Districts across the country helping people protect land, water, forests, wildlife, and related natural resources. The California State Legislature formed Tahoe RCD in 1974 under Division 9 of the California Public Resources Code. Tahoe RCD is a non-regulatory, grant-funded, local agency that works in the Lake Tahoe Basin.

Tahoe RCD, along with our many partners, obtains grant funding and private donations to support all aspects of conservation issues which include, but are not limited to: water quality, wildlife habitat, fire defensible space, sustainable recreation, water conservation and community enhancement. Current programs at Tahoe RCD focus on stormwater management, aquatic invasive species control and prevention, land management, forestry and conservation landscaping initiatives.
