What's New?

The NCRC&DC had several successful fundraising efforts last year, and is looking forward to our 2017 fundraising including the Human Race on May 6 and our annual auction in September. The money we raise in these fundraising efforts goes to implementing our pollinator protection, rainwater harvesting, and other programs, and we thank all of our donors and sponsors for their support!

We completed two "Rain Catcher" water conservation projects in 2016 in Sonoma County, following up on the succesful project in Mendocino County in 2015--we bought and delivered all of the materials: plumbing, gutters, and storage tank as well as the gravel for the tank to be placed on a compacted pad. We then join with students, parents, teachers, and community members at the schools (Guerneville Elementary and R. L. Stevens in Santa Rosa in 2016) to build the "Rain Catcher," a rooftop rainwater collection and storage system, from the ground up! These are great successes and the kids have a fun learning experience.

We are also part of the Amazon Smile -- the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the price of eligible purchases to the charitable organizations selected by you, the customers. You can easily support us as we are registed with Amazon as a charitable organization. It costs nothing more than your regular Amazon shopping, but the Amazon donation supports us when you shop. Just browse to smile.amazon.com/ch/68-0484941 and Amazon donates to North Coast Resource Conservation & Development Council.

Are you thinking of buying or selling a property? We also have joined the 5% Back Program of KB Properties. This exciting program by realtors Adam Goldberg & Chelsea Wiecek makes charitable contributions to our community--their 5% Back program allows sellers/buyers to donate 5% of their commission to the seller's or buyer's favorite, local non-profit organization. Naturally, we hope sellers/buyers will choose US, the North Coast Resource Conservation & Development Council! To Find out more information, click here http://www.ncrcanddc.org/fivepercent.htm.
