Technical Assistance

CDFA, NRCS, CARCD, UCANR, and CFBF are all committed to strengthening and streamlining Technical Assistance through the voluntary  efforts of landowners and land-managers across landscapes and land types. Each partner contributes a unique element to that process that is unlike the others. The key goal is improving technical assistance that leads to increased opportunities for natural resource conservation for all customers.
