Our Mission

The Lower Platte River Corridor Alliance exists to foster the development and implementation of locally drawn strategies, actions, and practices to protect, enhance, and restore the vitality of the Lower Platte River's resources. 

Welcome to the Lower Platte River Corridor Alliance

The Lower Platte River is one of Nebraska's most unique and also one of the most populous areas of the state. With diversity in natural, cultural, economic and social resources, both opportunities and challenges abound.

With collaboration and participation by the Corridor's residents, stakeholders and the greater public, the LPRCA can continue to protect, enhance and restore the wealth of resources. Our website furthers our mission by providing ways for you to learn more and get involved. We hope you'll spend some time learning about the LPRCA and the lower Platte. Thanks for visiting.
