Newest Trail Open

A new stretch of Lincoln's Salt Creek Levee Trail is open, as the project nears completion. The latest stretch follows Salt Creek from 14th Street, near the NU Soccer and Tennis Complex on the north side of Salt Creek, to Cornhusker Highway. Dedicated cold weather trail users can enjoy it now, but it will still be there in the spring!

Listen to Meetings!

Audio of our Board of Directors meetings is now being offered online, starting with November, 2017. Meetings are open to the public. If you couldn't make it, try our Recorded Meetings page!

Earlier Meetings Start December 13th

NRD Logo

Our December Board of Directors Meeting starts earlier in two ways:

  • The December meeting has been moved to one week earlier than usual, on Wednesday, December 13th
  • It will begin at 2:00 PM

Moving the meeting up one week helps to avoid conflicts with Christmas holiday celebrations. Starting the December through March monthly meetings at 2:00 PM is done annually and gives the public and board a chance to travel to and from the meetings in daylight. Meetings the rest of the year begin at 7:00 PM. Meetings are always open to the public.

Order Seedling Trees & Shrubs

Each winter the NRD offers seedling trees and shrubs for sale in bulk, then we combine our orders with orders from Nebraska's 22 other NRDs to get a great price (less than $1 per plant). Orders are being taken until March 23rd, 2018, but some species will sell out before the deadline. Seedlings will be delivered in April, just in time for planting!
