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. You can stay up to date with the WSRCD by reading our Newsletter.  


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 August 28, 2017. This month's agenda and previous minutes can be found here.

Anderson River Park Salmonid Habitat Restoration Public Meeting

We invite you to learn about a proposed side channel rearing project at Anderson River Park, including an overview of the Upper Sacramento River Anadromous Fish Habitat Restoration Program. View the presentation here[...]


On August 15th, 2017 the Western Shasta Resource Conservation District will be excavating nine geotechnical test pits at Anderson River Park as we continue to look into the proposed Anderson River Park Side Channel Habitat Project. The test pits will determine the sediment composition, and help to establish the final design of up to three new side channels. These side channels are being designed for the purpose of creating new juvenile salmon habitat in the Sacramento River.

These test pits will take one day to dig, and will result in limited disturbance to the public at Anderson River Park.
