ANNUAL PLAN AND DIVISION OF FUNDS
Our work is community-driven, working closely with local communities to identify the wise use of natural resources, instilling collaborative approaches for problem-solving, ensuring efficient and effective use of public resources, and aligning our goals with land manager conservation needs.
Based on community feedback, the PCD Board of Supervisors and staff developed a 5-year Long Range Plan that outlines priority natural resource concerns and conservation needs, as well as measurable goals of success. Our current Long Range Plan is effective for 2020 - 2025.
