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.

They also present natural resource programs to ARCH (AZ Rehabilitation Center for the Handicapped) twice a year when called upon.
