Resource Conservation and Development

RC&D in Michigan

Michigan's Resource Conservation and Development (RC&D) Councils focus on improvement of quality of life achieved through natural resources conservation and community development. The goals of the councils include developing sustainable communities, encouraging prudent development, and managing and conserving natural resources.

Each RC&D area has a community-based program established and governed by local leaders.  Each area is sponsored by the counties and Conservation Districts within its boundaries. Other organizations and units of government may also be co-sponsors.

Activities in each area are governed by a RC&D Council composed of a representative from each sponsor. These councils establish their own governing policies and develop programs to fit local needs.
