About the District
Triangle NRCD is located in the western one-third of Yavapai County. Most of the District is rangeland which includes extensive areas of chaparral, with some areas of pine forest, grassland, and desert shrub. Most of the land not developed for residential use is used for ranching, wildlife habitat, outdoor recreation and watershed protection. A large percentage of land is state or federally owned.
The goals of the District are to educate the public about productive, sustainable land use and the conservation of natural resources. Priority concerns include reliable water resources, invasive weeds, erosion, brush management, recreation impacts, and resource deterioration. Drought over the past several years has led to increased incidence and severity of wildfires and subsequent flooding damage when heavy rainstorms occur with reduced soil cover. Increasing human population and conversion of ranch lands to subdivisions has caused heavy impact to natural resources both by human occupancy and outdoor recreational use. Invasion of noxious weeds is at least partly due to this influence.
The District cooperates with the Natural Resource Conservation Service to help landowners obtain technical expertise and cost sharing to apply conservation practices on their property or leased lands. Practices include prescribed grazing, brush control, water and fence development, increased use of solar or other renewable power sources, and control of noxious weeds.
