Glacierland RC&D is incorporated and classified as a 501(c) 3, nonprofit, tax exempt organization. Our primary geographical area serves Eastern Wisconsin.


Our goals:

  • Assure the quality of the natural resource base for future generations.

  • Provide area citizens with an attractive, healthy, and satisfying place to live, work and play.

  • Improve the standard of living and provide adequate incomes for all area residents.

What is the RC&D program?

The RC&D program was established by federal legislation in 1962. This act directs the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) to help units of government conserve and properly utilize all resources in solving local issues. Citizens who are aware of the opportunities first hand provide leadership and work together to set program priorities. A variety of individuals, government agencies, organizations, environmental groups and business institutions provide assistance to these people in accomplishing their program goals.


In 1994, the Glacierland Resource Conservation and Development area was organized to cover the nine counties and Oneida Nation of Northeastern Wisconsin.


In 2011, the federal budget eliminated funding for the RC&D program, but Glacierland RC&D, as well as the RC&D program across the nation, continues on with their mission to improve life for our citizens.


Partnerships and collaborations are an essential part of how we get things done. We work effectively with individuals and groups in the public and private sectors, finding ways to blend our skills and knowledge to deliver cost-effective solutions.
