NRD to help Prairie Loft seek grant for land purchase

The Little Blue Natural Resources District will partner with the Prairie Loft Center for Outdoor and Agricultural Learning in seeking a grant to help purchase more land for educational purposes.

Meeting in Hastings Tuesday, the district board voted 8-7 to prepare an application for funding from the Nebraska Environmental Trust to help purchase 145 acres of state property adjoining the existing Prairie Loft ground just west of Hastings on DLD Road – the former farm building site for the Hastings Regional Center.

“I guess I don’t like the idea of NRDs owning farm ground,” said Rich Kahman of Fairfield, a farmer and board member who previously served as board chairman.
