Verde River Day

Saturday, September 24th, 2022
9:00 am – 2:00 pm
Dead Horse Ranch State Park
Cottonwood, AZ

One of the most popular events at Verde River Day is paddling a canoe around the lagoon. For many, it’s a first experience exploring aquatic life from above. Children, old and young, peer with delight into the clear waters of the lagoon, searching for trout, catfish, and sunfish and with luck, catching a glimpse of a sunbathing turtle. It’s a labor-intensive effort and volunteers are desperately needed to support over 600 community members expected to participate. Please see our volunteer flyer for more info and contact.

About the Verde Natural Resource Conservation District:

Since its inception, the Verde NRCD has taken a leading role in helping landowners within its boundaries make more productive use of soil and water resources. The success of the NRCD lies in an emphasis on local control, local knowledge and local leadership to achieve conservation. The Verde NRCD includes portions of both Yavapai and Coconino counties. While the vast majority of land within the Verde NRCD’s borders is national forest, the District also includes state, tribal and private lands.

It is the goal of the Verde NRCD to maintain and enhance the quality of life in the District through science and tradition-based management of natural resources.

The Verde NRCD is governed by a 5 member elected Board of Supervisors. The Board meets monthly and the meetings are open to the public.
