Here at Solano RCD we believe that people learn and understand the value of environmental stewardship best when they can actively participate in real projects that transform the landscapes in which they live. Solano RCD offers a number of opportunities for enthusiasts and students alike! For students, opportunities like these are critical for inspiring the next generation of conservationists, developing our youth's personal connections to the land, and building connections between having fun in the great outdoors and a personal stewardship ethic.
Getting outside and getting your hands dirty provides immediate, real-life involvement in conservation and supports us in getting the job done. Through propagating plants, removing weeds, planting natives, and attending community cleanups, our volunteers get to know their communities better while having a real, positive impact on helping the environment!
