Who we are

who we are 1LandSmart® is a regional collaborative program that helps land managers meet their natural resource management goals while supporting productive lands and thriving streams. LandSmart was developed by the Sonoma Resource Conservation District (RCD), Napa County RCD, Mendocino County RCD and Gold Ridge RCD in collaboration with the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), land managers, and environmental agencies.

By working together, we can offer an enhanced program that draws upon the skills and expertise of each RCD. Through this collaboration we provide our communities with a unique, cost effective conservation service that is specific to the region and offered through a trusted and local organization.


About Resource Conservation Districts (RCDs)

SRCD Ag Ed DayRCDs are local public organizations that support voluntary and scientifically sound natural resource stewardship. RCDs provide technical and educational assistance to property owners/managers and other stakeholders to identify and achieve their natural resource and land management goals. Since the late 1930s, RCDs throughout the State of California have worked within their communities to facilitate productive landscapes and thriving natural systems.

There are 99 RCDs throughout California–each covers a different geographic territory and each is responsive and accountable to its community to promote local conservation goals. RCDs are primarily funded through competitive grants but some RCDs also receive funding from local property taxes, fee for service work, and private donations.
