The Johnson County Park and Recreation District is committed
to maintaining the health and diversity of our natural resources through active and responsive stewardship. JCPRD works
towards this goal by using the following standards:
|• Being an innovative and ecologically responsible land
|• Balancing the protection and enhancement of native
flora/fauna with recreation.
|• Identifying, protecting, and managing endangered
|• Providing quality fishing opportunities
at all stocked bodies
JCPRD provides leadership in protecting open space across
Johnson County with special attention to the major riparian corridors
and native prairies. The district's Resource Management Plan guides all
elements of the agency’s efforts.
JCPRD often must respond to disruptions in the dynamics that make
up healthy ecosystems. Millions of visitors, exotic plants, and extreme
animal populations all threaten the health and diversity that JCPRD
strives to protect. Follow the links below to find out more about
how we offset these challenges.
