Historic and Natural Resources

Stewardship

Protecting our historic & natural resources protects our quality of life.  High-quality, protected natural resources and stewardship of our historic assets.

For Douglas County to stay the great place we know and love, quality of life requires the County Commissioners’ focus on the high quality of our land, air, and water, protecting our wildlife by protecting their habitat and being responsible stewards of our history and heritage.

Preservation

With that in mind, did you know that today – through some exceptional partnerships – more than 392.7 square miles or 46.6% of all the land in Douglas County is public or protected land?  And keeping with our belief that water is one of our most precious resources,  98% of residents and businesses served by central water service are covered by an approved water conservation plan – accomplished through some additional, extraordinary partnerships with the County’s many water providers. From the landmarking of 38 properties to the creation of a Virtual History Museum featuring artifacts from 13,000 years before present to 1950, Douglas County is committed to the preservation of the unique historic and cultural heritage of the county.  Protecting our historic and natural resources does protect our quality of life.
