Scheduled Meetings


NRD Awareness...through Coffee!

The NRD has scheduled two Coffee Shop discussions in early December, where the public is invited to talk informally with the NRD staff to better understand NRD programs and activities. NRD Water Resources Conservationist Steve Herdzina said the Coffee Shops are primarily meant for discussing ground water programs, but staff will be on-hand to discuss any aspect of the NRD. The first Coffee Shop will at the Town Hall in Sprague (18900 Market Street) on Tuesday, December 6th. Another is scheduled at the Honey Creek Restaurant in Waverly (13631 Energy Way), on Thursday, December 8th. Both Coffee Shops will be from 8:30AM to 10:00AM. Coffee and refreshments will be provided and we hope to see you there!

The NRD is taking bulk orders for bare root seedling trees and shrubs. Order now and you'll get them just in time for planting next April. Each year Nebraska's NRDs sell more than a million trees to private landowners, AND we combine orders to get a great price. Most of our tree and shrub seedlings come from Halsey, Nebraska.
