Since 1979, the Tahoe Resource Conservation District has been dedicated to the protection of the region’s land, water, forests, wildlife, and other natural resources. Funded by federal, state, local and private grants, along with 2 percent from property taxes from El Dorado and Placer counties, the RCD invests in stormwater management, aquatic invasive species control and prevention, land management, forestry, and conservation landscaping initiatives.
The RCD is governed by a five-member appointed board that meets monthly on the second Tuesday of the month at 10 a.m.
