The Papio-Missouri River Natural Resources District (NRD) is a regional government agency that protects ground and surface water, slows the effect of soil erosion, reduces flood threats, creates and protects wildlife habitat and plants trees. Working through both public and private partnerships, the Natural Resources District has put an emphasis on creating multi-purpose projects that combine sound resources management with "quality of life" opportunities such as recreation and environmental education. Popular recreation projects include: Omaha-area hike/bike trails, Wehrspann Lake at Chalco Hills Recreation Area and Prairie View Recreation Area.
Within the Papio-Missouri River NRD's six county area flow the Missouri, the Platte and the Elkhorn rivers - among the most environmentally significant waterways in our nation. The District's area also includes the Papillion Creek Watershed, one of the most flood-prone ares in Nebraska. The NRD includes all of Sarpy, Douglas, Washington and Dakota Counties plus the eastern 60% of Burt and Thurston Counties.
