About the District
The Littlefield-Hurricane Valley Natural Resource Conservation District (NRCD) was organized on November 28, 1949. The District's objective is to educate and assist cooperators and the public on resource conservation and land management best practices, and connecting them with federal, state, and local agencies to secure funding to assist with conservation practice implementation.
Ranching is the primary form of agriculture in the District. Since the area is prone to drought and variability of precipitation, the District’s greatest concern is providing reliable water sources, as well as improving plant condition and the control of noxious weeds.
District boundaries include the area south of the Utah-Arizona state line, west of the Hurricane Cliffs to the Colorado River, and east to the Arizona-Nevada border, all within Mohave County. The District is made up primarily of federally owned land, which allows for many opportunities for coordinated planning on a variety of issues with local land management agencies.
- Elevation: 1,250 ft. at the Colorado River to 7,950 ft. at the top of the Virgin Mountain Range.
