Conservation Tree Contest


The North Platte NRD is committed to protecting our natural resources and conservation trees provide so many benefits to our natural world.  Trees provide protection from the wind for fields, a shelter for wildlife and cattle, food sources, living snow fences, and much more.

The NRD is asking people to develop conservation plans involving trees to help spread the word about the importance of trees.
