Three Rivers RC&D is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that works to improve the quality of life for citizens of Northwest Florida by developing and implementing projects that conserve natural resources and improve economic conditions. Three Rivers Resource, Conservation, & Development (RC&D) bases its initiative development on several different priorities, including land conservation and management, water management, and community development.
Three Rivers RC&D has earned a positive reputation in the Northwest Florida community for funding several major projects that have made a significant impact on local conservation. Three Rivers has supported the Wildland Fire Education Program which offers technical and monetary assistance intended to reduce the high risk of wildfires in the region.
Another recent initiative aided the Eglin Air Force Base in the completion of several restoration projects, including the installation of root wads to restore environmentally sensitive areas. Three Rivers constructed berms and established permanent vegetation on test range sites to control erosion. Similarly, the Perdido Bay Tribe Greenhouse and Indigenous Plant Propagation Project built a greenhouse specifically to assist with restoring indigenous plants to threatened beach areas.
