Organizational & Community Highlights

The Trinity County Resource Conservation District is a special district of Trinity County with its headquarters nestled in Weaverville, California at the foothills of the Trinity Alps Wilderness. Weaverville, the County seat of Trinity County, is approximately sixty minutes from Redding in Shasta County and two hours from Arcata along HWY 299. Trinity County has a population of approximately 16,100 people and over 76% of the land in Trinity County is managed by the federal government. There is an abundance of outdoor recreation activities including access to the Trinity River along the HWY 299 corridor. Weaverville has a quaint historic downtown along Main St with a few art galleries, shops, and restaurants, yet is limited in indoor activity options. Trinity Lake and Lewiston Lake are just a short drive away with great fishing, hiking, swimming, and boating opportunities.

The mission of the District is to assist in protecting, managing, conserving, and restoring the natural resources of Trinity County through information, education, technical assistance, and project implementation programs. The District has a very open community with 12 full time employees and 20 seasonal employees. The District is divided into six main project areas; education and outreach, revegetation, road improvement, geographic information systems, forest health/fuel reduction, and watershed management. Each program coordinator works in tandem with one another to accomplish objectives on our multidisciplinary projects, each program area playing to their strengths to provide quality service to members of the public and our funding sponsors.
