Our Conservation Planning program enables Solano RCD to assist landowners in meeting their resource management goals. Through the planning process, landowners gain a better understanding of the natural resources on their property. Our staff conduct site visits and create Conservation Plans that provide information on soils, vegetation, hydrology, and resident wildlife. Conservation Plans offer recommendations for resource management, including appropriate species for vegetation plantings or practices to address concerns such as erosion or invasive weeds.
The RCD can also connect landowners to our federal, state, and local agency partners that have programs to provide cost-share or other support for conservation practices.
Solano RCD utilizes County tax base funding to provide conservation planning to agricultural producers, hobby farmers, and rural residents within our District. Since 2008, our conservation planning services have expanded to reach landowners across most of Solano County as the result of large programmatic grants from the Department of Conservation Watershed Coordinator Program; smaller targeted programs like the Solano County Water Agency’s Small Grants Flood Program; and service agreements with the Natural Resources Conservation Service. Each of these programs have allowed us to reach greater numbers people across more of the County and to create a healthier landscape for Solano County residents and wildlife.
