The Lower Niobrara NRD would like to welcome Shaun Higgins as the newest Director for Sub- District #1. He was appointed by the Board to complete his father’s, Tommy Higgins’s term. Shaun is a farmer/rancher and grew up on the family’s ranch south west of Naper. Shaun has one son, Thomas who works with him on the ranch. He has laid miles of tree mulch for the district over the years alone with planting many trees on the ranch. Shaun said he is honored to be able to full fill his father’s term on the Lower Niobrara NRD board. The Niobrara River has been at the top of the list for Shaun and he plans on continuing his dad’s efforts in ensuring water for future generations and promoting conservation practices.
