The Heritage Data Management System (HDMS) is part of a global network of more than 80 Natural Heritage Programs and Conservation Data Centres. HDMS information is available so Arizonans can make prudent decisions weighing future development, economic growth, and environmental integrity.

This report and the accompanying Geographic Information System (GIS) datasets summarize the results of the workshop held in Florence, Arizona in 2010. At this workshop, stakeholders representing a broad range of organizations and interests identified and mapped the locations of important wildlife linkages across Pinal County.

This dataset contains Rangeland Management Units for each national forest in Arizona. Each National Forest grazing allotment, or Rangeland Management Unit (RMU), is a designated area of land available for livestock grazing, managed by the Forest Service, and may be subdivided into pastures necessary for grazing management.

This dataset contains boundaries for Arizona Game Management Unit (GMU) boundaries. A Game Management Unit is a division established by the Arizona Game and Fish Commission for wildlife management purposes, including the setting of hunting seasons. A GMU specifies areas and times for which certain wildlife species may be taken.

Web-based mapping tool. A new tool that provides hunters, anglers, and other outdoor recreationists with access information to and through private lands.

Gila chub Gila intermedia was federally listed as endangered with critical habitat in 2005 (Federal Register 2005). Upper Mineral Creek, the watershed immediately upstream of the ASARCO Ray Mine Big Box Dam, was designated as critical habitat for Gila chub at the time of listing. According to Robinson (2008a), Gila chub were last documented in upper Mineral Creek in 2000. Subsequent surveys completed in 2002, 2006 and 2008 were not able to document the presence of Gila chub, and the species is considered extirpated from upper Mineral Creek (Robinson 2008a).

On March 15-16, 2006 Bill Burger, Curt Gill, Natalie Robb, Cori Carveth and Craig Woods surveyed the upper section of Mineral Creek from the ASARCO Dam to the headwaters at Government Springs Ranch.
