Managing, Protecting, & Developing Nebraska’s Natural Resources

In 1969, the Natural Resources District legislation was signed into law to combine Nebraska's 154 special purpose entities into 24 Natural Resource Districts. The Natural Resources District came in existence on July 1, 1972, to begin protection efforts such as tree planting, acre certification, water conservation, groundwater management plans, and cost share programs.

The Upper Elkhorn NRD protects the natural resources of four Nebraska counties: Antelope County, Holt County, Rock County and Wheeler County. The staff at the Natural Resources District has the responsibility of managing, developing and protecting the soil and water resources found in the district. This obligation means looking out for soil erosion, wildlife habitats, water supply levels and much more!

While practicing forestry and rangeland management, the UENRD offers many conservation programs to assist landowners in preserving and improving the utilization and conservation of groundwater and surface water. The Upper Elkhorn NRD staff is available to work with students, teachers, and the general public to encourage conservation education and public awareness of our natural resources and how to preserve, protect, and improve them for future generations.
