About the District
The Agua Fria-New River NRCD is located just north of Phoenix. The District lies in a rugged area with mainly desert shrub type vegetation. Land ownership is a mix of private, State, and federal lands. Much of the land is used mainly for livestock grazing, farming, wildlife, and watershed protection. Agua Fria receives heavy recreational use because of it proximity to Phoenix and a growing local population.

Arizona State Envirothon
The District continues to support the AZ State Envirothon. It is a natural resource competition for high school students throughout the state. Students must learn and study four natural resource topics and a new annual environmental issue each year. Topics include water, soil, wildlife, and forestry.
The District also provides assistance to Project WET Water Festivals when taking place within the District boundaries.
They also present natural resource programs to Arizona Rehabilitation Center for the Handicapped (ARCH) sometimes twice a year.
