The Natural Resources District, NRD, is a unique system built to conserve, sustain, and improve natural resources and the environment.  In 1972, NRD’s were developed per watershed basins, instead of by political boundaries.  This system provided a more efficient management strategy, solving the issues of overlapping authorities and lack of funds.  Each District is governed by a locally elected Board of Directors, which ensures that local issues and concerns are addressed.
