What is Post Oak Resource Conservation and Development?

Resource Conservation and Development (RC&D) is a unique program that is led by local volunteer councils that help people care for and protect their natural resources in a way that improves the local economy, environment, and standard of living.  RC&D is a way for people to work together to plan and carry out activities that will make their areas a better place to live.

The Assumption

RC&D is based on the assumption that local citizens, with assistance, can develop and carry out an action-oriented plan for the social, economic, and environmental enrichment of their communities.

The Purpose

The purpose of RC&D is to promote conservation, development, and utilization of natural resources; to improve the general level of economic activity, and to enhance the environment and standard of living in all communities.  The aim is to provide a system of rural development, encourage the wise use of natural resources, and improve the quality of life in America.

The Process

Diverse groups of local volunteers are brought together in a unique partnership to find solutions to their problems to carry out the RC&D concept.  The structure for this process involves:

  • Identifying Problems
  • Establishing Goals and Objectives
  • Developing Alternative Plans
  • Implementing Plans

“Humankind has not woven the web of life. We are but the thread of it. Whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves. All things are bound together. All things connect. Whatever befalls the earth, befalls, all the children of the earth." - Chief Seattle's address to President Franklin Pierce, 1855
