The IERCD is a public agency, headquartered in the City of Redlands and focusing on open space preservation, wildland rehabilitation, and education and outreach to residents within 1,300 square miles of northwestern Riverside and southwestern San Bernardino counties. Governed by a seven-member board of directors who are appointed by the San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors, IERCD staff members work to carry out the District's mission, both through IERCD-focused projects and through collaboration with a variety of public and private partners.
Our intention is to reach out to a diverse group of students and facilitate learning of natural resources which will in turn create an awareness, lead to mindfulness, and create positive actions that will last life-long. We will provide strong education programs that will encourage today’s youth to accept the responsibility of conserving our natural resources for tomorrow’s generations.
NATURAL RESOURCES MANAGEMENT
The Natural Resources Team strives to maintain and rehabilitate native habitats throughout the Inland Empire by restoring native plant populations that act as a cornerstone to many species throughout the watershed.
The purpose of the Inland Empire Resource Conservation District is to promote the understanding that the quality of the environment determines the quality of life. In cooperation with landowners, local, state and federal agencies, the agricultural community, environmental and community groups, we will promote good stewardship of our soil, water and other natural resources. We will provide strong education programs that will encourage today’s youth to accept the responsibility of conserving our natural resources for tomorrow’s generations.
