Open Space & Natural Resources

Enhance Quality of Life

The Douglas County Open Space Program was created in 1994 with the passage of a sixth-of-a-cent sales and use tax and protects over 63,037 acres of open space land in the County.

Douglas County Division of Open Space and Natural Resources seeks to enhance the quality of life for residents by protecting wildlife habitats and natural resources in our public access properties, trails (don’t forget trail etiquette), historic sites and scenic views.   All while preserving Douglas County’s rural heritage while providing a wide range of compatible outdoor recreation and educational opportunities.  We also offer special event / special use permits for our open space properties.
