  • The Nemaha Natural Resources District has scheduled free park permit weekend May 18-19.
    Permits for Kirkman's Cover near Humboldt, Iron Horse Trail Lake near DuBois and Wirth Brothers Lake near Tecumseh are normally $12 annually or $5 for two-days.
    Visitors have an opportunity to try out the parks at no cost for these two days and decide if they wish to purchase a permit for future visits.
    Annual permits may be purchased in a variety of ways:
    • By calling Tecumseh office at 335-3325
    • Printing application at NRD website
    • Permit envelopes at the parks
    Proceeds from the sale of the permits help defray costs of maintaining and improving the facilities at these public recreation areas.
    Over $10,500 was collected last year from the sale of NNRD park permits, which are not the same as Nebraska Game & Parks Commission park entry permits.
    Prairie Owl, a small recreation site south of Dunbar in Otoe County, is also operated by the NRD but does not require a permit.
