Programs

Since 1972, we have been continually improving our wide scope of programs to protect our precious natural resources and to better serve constituents. Our programs cover a variety of natural resource topics and initiatives, such as: 

  • Ground Water programs that help landowners improve conservation and production on their farmland
  • Environmental education programs that help students better understand the importance of our natural resources
  • Cost-sharing programs that help landowners pay for improvements designed to enhance their operations and conserve natural resources
  • Programs to keep special tracts of land in their natural state​
  • Tree programs that help individuals and groups purchase trees
  • Programs to help towns and individuals keep their water supplies safe from pollution

Each of Nebraska's 23 natural resource districts has a locally elected Board of Directors which creates and customizes programs and projects to best preserve and protect the natural resources in that district. As a result, programs may vary between districts.
