Our Mission

To assist NRDs in a coordinated effort to accomplish collectively what may not be accomplished individually to conserve, sustain, and improve our natural resources and environment.

A Statewide Commitment

Natural resources issues frequently cross political boundaries. NARD helps the state's Natural Resources Districts approach these issues in a coordinated effort. NARD works hand-in-hand with districts on basinwide issues, such as the Platte River Cooperative Agreement and the Republican River lawsuit with Kansas.

One Voice

By providing governmental representation, NARD gives districts a collective voice so they may be adequately represented on both state and federal levels.
