About Us

The Natural Resources Districts (NRD) Oral History Project is a collaboration between the Daugherty Water for Food Institute,
the Nebraska Association of Natural Resources Districts, the Nebraska State Historical Society
and several dedicated former and current stewards of Nebraska’s Natural Resources.
Since its inception in April 2013, the project has recorded and transcribed over eighty
45-minute oral histories spanning former and current staff and leadership of all 23
NRDs and key individuals that helped ensure their formation.
