Seedling Order Deadline Nears

The ordering deadline for NRD seedling trees is March 20th. Each year Nebraska's NRDs combine orders to get constituents a great price on more than 30 varieties of seedling trees and shrubs suitable for windbreaks, wildlife habitat and many other uses. After ordering, seedlings are received at the NRD in early April and stored in our custom tree cooler until you're ready to plant them in April or May. Cost is $0.75 per plant ($0.80 for less than 100) and species are sold in bundles of 25.

2nd Pond Workshop Possible

A free lake/pond management workshop set for early-March at the NRD office is full, but the NRD, NE Extension, NE Dept. of Environmental Quality and NE Game & Parks are considering another workshop in the near-future. You can help sway our decision by putting your name on a waiting list!

The second workshop, like the first, will include many topics, including algae, fishery management, clarity, developing a maintenance plan and more.
