Western Prairie Resource Conservation and Development (RC&D) Area, Inc. is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization that was created to help groups and individuals in the eight northwest counties of Kansas develop and improve the social, economic, and environmental conditions in their communities.
How does RC&D help?
No one knows better than local citizens what their community needs are and which are most urgent. Through the Western Prairie RC&D, citizens gain access to a network of public and private services and financing to accomplish projects. Help is provided by working "with" people rather than "for" people. Development of local leadership and community pride is a key part of RC&D activities.
Local People Key to RC&D
Volunteers from each participating county comprise a governing council to plan and conduct the activities of the Western Prairie RC&D. Council members include people from all walks of life-farmers, ranchers, teachers, local entrepreneurs, bankers, homemakers, and others. These people volunteer their time to help make positive things happen in their communities.
