Education & Outreach

 
     

Gully StabilizationThe Resource Conservation District provides forums for understanding and learning about conservation of natural resources for landowners, land managers, K-12 and college students, and the general public. These forums include workshops, educational presentations, tours, mailings, media outreach, special events, classroom visits, and internship and volunteer opportunities.

LANDOWNERS AND FARMERS

The RCDMC works with our partners to sponsor on-farm demonstrations and workshops for landowners and farmers on a range of conservation practices addressing erosion control, habitat enhancement, water quality protection, and streambank protection. The RCDMC sponsors annual workshops and on-farm demonstrations for winter road seeding and row arrangement, two of the most cost effective ways of controlling erosion on steep hillsides.  In addition, the RCDMC is an active partner to protect water quality on the Central Coast by providing instruction and leadership through the Irrigated Agriculture Farm Water Quality Short Courses.

COLLEGE STUDENTS & VOLUNTEERS

In partnership with local colleges and universities, the RCDMC sponsors internship (paid and unpaid) and volunteer opportunities to students interested in watershed protection and resource conservation.

FAMILIES AND CHILDREN

Gully StabilizationThe RCDMC takes an active role to educate Monterey County youth and their families about agriculture, resource conservation and watershed protection.  Our staff and interns participate in the Monterey County Farm Days and other community organized educational events.  We organize and lead a number of annual tours and events for children and families, offering first-hand exposure to the natural environment and resources in Monterey County. Contact us if you would like to be added to our mailing list.
