Program areas at Sustainable Conservation

Accelerating Restoration - California boasts iconic plants and animals, some found nowhere else on the planet, but more than 350 of these species and their habitats are threatened because weve significantly altered the states landscapes. This includes the destruction of 90% of Californias riparian forests and ongoing pollution in a vast majority of waterways. The good news is that all Californians, from private landowners to conservation groups to public agencies, can do a lot to restore these damaged places. We make it easier to restore our vital natural resources in a changing climate by partnering with government, NGOs and other restoration proponents to develop regulatory and policy incentives that accelerate the pace and scale of habitat restoration statewide. Our efforts help revive degraded waterways to boost clean water and habitat, and bring struggling species back from the brink.
Dairies - California is an agriculture powerhouse, but feeding the nation means we also face challenges when it comes to keeping our vital drinking water supplies clean, our communities healthy and our groundwater supplies sustainable. The states dairy industry is key to our vibrant economy, and dairy producers need help finding economical ways to manage their resources that also protect the environment. Sustainable Conservation advances new approaches to producing food that boost clean water and support healthy communities all while building healthier soils and bolstering the resiliency of Californias farming regions.
Water Management - California faces big challenges when it comes to our water supplies. Our limited and less reliable fresh water is being stretched to meet the needs of the environment and growing urban and farming demands, while our groundwater supplies are steadily declining. Sustainable Conservation advances promising practices, incentives and policies to help achieve long-term water sustainability in California. Our efforts mean reliable, affordable and clean water for irrigating the crops that feed the nation, healthy communities, and vibrant waterways that support diverse wildlife.
