The Madera/Chowchilla Resource Conservation District

We’re working to become a go-to hub for natural resource conservation and agriculture, on public and private lands in our county. 

Thank You for Visiting

The Madera/Chowchilla Resource Conservation District (MCRCD) aims to provide landowners and managers with educational materials to help manage their property’s resources.  Our organization was designed to evolve with the changing needs of the people and land, to ensure the Madera – Chowchilla area is home to thriving and resilient communities, landscapes, and economies. The information found on this website was developed to help public and private landowners to become better land stewards.
