Welcome to the Lower Platte River Corridor Alliance
The Lower Platte River is one of Nebraska's most unique and 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 River. Thanks for visiting.
