New RCD Office Arrangements

The Southern Sonoma County and Sotoyome Resource Conservation Districts (RCDs) are excited to announce that we have taken the first steps to initiate a district merge to become one district. On 3/6/13, at a joint RCD board meeting, both Boards of Directors voted unanimously to begin the process to reorganize into one district. The new RCD plans to preserve all board members to represent the diverse geographical regions of the new district. The process has just begun and the Boards and staff are excited to work on conservation programs on a broader scale with greater efficiency.

To best serve our constituents, the new RCD plans to maintain offices in both Petaluma and Northern Santa Rosa. The Petaluma office will be staffed with RCD employees Tuesday-Friday, 9 a.m.-5 p.m. If a RCD staff member that you are interested in meeting with is not available, we encourage you to contact us via email or telephone to schedule an appointment.

Please Note: The USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) office location is not affected by the RCD merge and NRCS staff will continue working in the Petaluma office location.
