About the District
The Santa Cruz Natural Resource Conservation District (NRCD) is located in Santa Cruz County on the upper reaches of the Santa Cruz River. The District area is mainly rangeland, characterized by desert grassland, oak woodland, and some pine forests at higher elevation. Most of the land is used for ranching, wildlife recreation, and watershed protection, while there are limited areas of farmland.
Land ownership in the Santa Cruz NRCD is a mix of private, state, and federal lands. The District is committed to supporting policies and practices that are economically feasible, socially acceptable, and environmentally responsible. The NRCD is also dedicated to helping provide financial and technical assistance to cooperators through collaboration with other agencies and organizations.
The District's key resource concerns are addressed through a variety of programs in cooperation with other agencies or groups such as the University of Arizona Extension Service, NRCS, US Forest Service, Arizona Game and Fish Department, Department of Water Resources, Arizona State Land Department, Santa Cruz County, and numerous landowners and cooperators.
