Welcome to the Nemaha NRD

Protecting Lives, Protecting Property, Protecting the Future…since 1972. That’s when the Nebraska Legislature first charged Natural Resources Districts with a broad range of conservation based responsibilities. However, each NRD is unique with its own specific priorities. The Nemaha NRD encompasses all or parts of the eight southeastern counties in Nebraska, and 21 locally elected directors make local decisions to serve you.
