NRD’s to be Featured on NETV Program “Keeping Nebraska Local”

Have you wondered how Nebraska’s Natural Resources Districts were established? How NRDs differ across the state?  The NRDs will be featured in an hour-long program to be aired on Nebraska Educational Television (NET). The program will take viewers back to even before the NRDs were created and the struggle that Nebraska faced as soil and nutrients were swept away by the wind.

The program explains what legislators and key water leaders of that time had to overcome to develop the NRDs, how they were formed, and how far they have come to give the public the protection that they deserve. It dives into many different things the NRDs do from groundwater usage, water quality, chemigation, education. It also explains how flood control duels as recreation sites, recycling support for the public, the importance of our Conservation Tree program and much more. The video ends as the NRDs develop integrated management systems and prepare for what Mother Nature will bring us in the future. We have a unique system in place - ready for anything. Nebraska is miles ahead of many other states when it comes to our conservation efforts of our natural resources and we work hard to stay that way. The Natural Resources Districts’ mission is to protect lives, protect property and protect the future for years to come. Please join us in watching Keeping Nebraska Local: A Unique Approach to Resource Management.

The program will air on the following dates: March 24 at 8:00 pm, March 27 at 1:30 pm, and more dates to come in May
