About the District
The Verde NRCD, the oldest District in Arizona, is located along the Verde River in Central Arizona. It includes a range of vegetation types from desert shrub, to chaparral, to pinyon-juniper, and pine forest. Most of the District is included in National Forest land, but farmland occurs along the River.
At one time, over 300 farms existed within the Verde NRCD with over 14,000 acres of farmland. This number decreased over the years due to increased population and sale of land to housing developments. However, in the past 20 years there has been an increase of small farms and vineyards that have re-invigorated the District.
The Verde NRCD has taken a leading role in helping area landowners and managers make more productive use of their soil and water resources while also protecting the environment. A major priority has been to keep water flowing in the Verde River so that the people, plants, animals, and economies that depend on it continue to thrive. The District seeks to educate the public about the importance of riparian habitat, water resources, and wildlife.
