Education in the Reference Library


The Pit RCD encourages the general education of all age groups concerning natural resource issues.  By continuing to learn about resource concerns, land managers and landowners are better able to make decisions that have both economic and natural resource benefits.  Below you can find links to educational information.  For starters, an excellent article, titled “Kids on Land” is provided in the Feather River Land Trusts Annual Report.
