The following resolution was passed by the Pima Natural Resource Conservation District (Pima NRCD or District) Board of Supervisors on April 22, 2021.
Within eight days after passing the resolution, the District learned the the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service designated an additional approximately 23,000 acres within the District as critical habitat for the Distinct Population Segment of the Western Yellow-billed cuckoo and approximately 2,000 acres of land within the District as critical habitat for the Northern Mexican garter snake. These two new regulations further restricting approximately 25,000 acres of land within the District are therefore additional to the vast acreages of conservation land restrictions mentioned in the resolution.
