Sacramento River Side Channel Reconstruction

The Western Shasta Resource Conservation District (WSRCD) is a special district of the State of California and is funded entirely by grants and contracts. The district encompasses approximately 1.7 million acres bounded on the east by the watershed divide between eastern and western Shasta County; the north by the Siskiyou County line; the west by the Trinity County line; and the south by the Tehama County line. The WSRCD was formed in 1957. Since then, the RCD has grown from a small volunteer organization to a highly successful conservation district that is dedicated to the restoration and preservation of western Shasta County's natural resources. The WSRCD is staffed by people that are focused and passionate about maintaining the balance between our natural resources and our everyday living. 


The Western Shasta RCD Board of Directors meetings are on the fourth Monday each month at 5:30pm in the Western Shasta RCD office.

The next meeting will be on March 27, 2017. This month's agenda and previous minutes can be found here.
