ABOUT US

The Lower Platte North Natural Resources District covers 28 communities and approximately 1,031,000 acres of land in east-central Nebraska. The district’s population is roughly 60,000, almost equally divided between urban and rural residents.

The district encompasses land that drains into a stretch of the Platte River from south of Columbus to Ashland. Approximately 70 miles of the river flow directly through or border the district. It is our mission to ensure responsible and sustainable use of the natural resources within our district’s borders.
