NORTH PLATTE NRD TO LIMIT OFFICE ACCESS

 The North Platte NRD remains open and is continuing to serve the public but is limiting access to the office.  The office will remain locked during business hours, and staff is available by appointment only.  Please call 308-632-2749 to arrange to meet with the staff.  This measure is in addition to the modification of operations that was communicated earlier in the week. 

This modification included the following:

  • All events are canceled through  September 30th, 2020.
  • Employees are staggering schedules, and where possible, are working remotely.
  • Field employees will continue to perform field duties including tree orders, tree and grass plantings, fall water levels, and flow meter maintenance, and reads

The Board and staff of the NPNRD thanks the public for their understanding as they work to provide the best service to them in these uncertain times.

North Platte NRD to Continue with No Greenhouse Tours

Due to COVID concerns, the North Platte NRD Greenhouse will not be available for public tours until next April. The public is welcome to peruse the Greener Gardens Greenhouse or the North Platte NRD Facebook pages for updates on the greenhouse operations, educational information, and online seasonal tours and updates. Produce donations have continued through the summer with a total of 700 pounds being donated to a local food pantry. The cumulative total donated to date is 2400 pounds. We want to encourage the public to donate to our local food pantries during this pandemic as the need is increasing during this time.
