About the District
Chino Winds NRCD was organized in June of 1945, and is located in the north and central area of Yavapai County. It contains 2.7 million acres of private and state land which in-cludes boundaries north of Black Canyon City to Seligman, and west of the Verde Valley area, and south to the Congress area of Arizona.
Most of the District is comprised of rangeland, characterized by grassland, chaparral, and other vegetation types. Increasingly, urban development and subdivision of private lands are having impacts on these land uses. New highway construction to accommodate increased population has also im-pacted rangelands.
- Elevation: 2,500 to 6,000 ft.
- Terrain: Desert to mountains; home to the largest chaparrals in the U.S.
- Precipitation: Average 17″ annually
Land ownership is a mixture of private, state, and federal lands. Dominant land use in the District is for ranching and outdoor recreation,including hunting, hiking, and camping.
