What is Two Rivers RC&D?
Two Rivers RC&D is a nonprofit, 501 (c)(3) corporation. It was created through authority of the Food and Agriculture Act of 1962 (PL 87-703). There are 300 RC&D's in the nation today, located in all 50 states and U. S. Territories. Office Space, a coordinator, and a program assistant are provided through the U. S. Department of Agriculture's Natural Resources Conservation Service. No federal funds are provided for the operation of the RC&D Council.
Since 1972, the Two Rivers Resource Conservation & Development Board of Directors has completed 186 projects, totaling more than $22 million dollars. These funds were obtained from federal, state and local units of government as well as non-governmental sources. The types of activities range from field days, demonstrations, workshops, seminars, to stocking of wild turkeys, creating the Two Rivers Regional Council of Public Officials, establishing the 478 acre Orr Agriculture Research Center at Perry, stabilizing 150 acres of critically eroding roadbanks, helping establish three rural water supply districts, creating the McCully Heritage Project and many other projects.
