Projects & Programs
The NRD has a variety of programs to protect and conserve our water resources - both on the surface and underground.
Through cooperative programs with landowners and communities, the NRD plants thousands of trees each year and helps establish wildlife habitat areas.
The NRD is involved in several large-scale, multi-purpose projects to improve area watersheds, involving environmental restoration, flood control, and other components.
To help conserve soil and water, the NRD offers cooperative programs for landowners to establish terraces, buffers strips, small dams, and other conservation practices.
Fishing, camping, boating, and more - the NRD's recreation areas provide outdoor fun for the whole family.
Using GIS technology - a powerful tool for computer mapping and analysis - the NRD has brought its conservation programs into the Information Age.
An educated citizenry is vital to making wise choices about the conservation and protection of our natural resources. The NRD works with teachers, students and schools to bring conservation education to tomorrow's leaders.
