In 1972, the title of the state's conservation districts was changed from Soil
Conservation District (SCD) to Natural Resource Conservation District
(NRCD). The Coconino SCD then became the Coconino NRCD. The original
Coconino SCD came into being in December of 1965 with the combination of
two other SCDs. These were the San Francisco Peaks SCD and the Sitgreaves
Mountain SCD. The San Francisco Peaks SCD dated back to February 27, 1942 and the Sitgreaves Mountain SCD to June 13, 1946.

As first established, the conservation districts embraced only farm lands, but
in 1954 the state legislature amended the law to allow non-farm lands to be
included in the districts. Today, besides agricultural lands, the Coconino NRCD includes national park lands administered by the Department ofInterior, Indian
reservation lands, lands administered by the Department of Defense, and national forest lands.
