Natural Resources

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 steward.
• Balancing the protection and enhancement of native
   flora/fauna with recreation.
• Identifying, protecting, and managing endangered
• Providing quality fishing opportunities at all stocked bodies
   of water.

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.
