About the District
The Wickenburg NRCD is located in the western part of Arizona. It is primarily composed of desert shrub vegetation.
A large part of the Wickenburg NRCD land is owned by the government, State and federal. The primary land uses are for grazing livestock, wildlife habitat, watershed protection, and outdoor recreation.
Although it was historically a sparsely populated area used mainly for ranching and mining, this area has seen a large increase in population of permanent and winter residents due to its proximity to Phoenix. Most of the District is still used for livestock grazing, mainly on federal and state land grazing permits. Many small horse properties are found near Wickenburg and some other parts of the District.
