805 Taft Street, Lexington, NE
In partnership with the Dawson County Historical Society Museum, Dawson PPD is currently showcasing its history in the Art Gallery. The exhibit, titled “Yesterday’s Vision, Today’s Power,” highlights the Rural Electrification Act, the formation of Dawson PPD and the evolution of lineworker safety.

“Dawson PPD has a rich history and we’re eager to share it with the public,” said Communications Specialist Chelsea Gengenbach. “Since the District’s founding in 1937, our board members, employees and customers have witnessed several milestones in American history, the power of Mother Nature and numerous technology improvements in overall safety and efficiency.”

The display will be available for public viewing now through March 31. The museum is located at 805 Taft Street, Lexington. Public viewing hours are:

Tuesday – Friday: 10:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
Saturday: 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.

In addition, Dawson PPD will host an open house at its Lexington headquarters on May 4. Plans include facility tours and the burial of the 80th anniversary time capsule. The time capsule will be placed in a junction box, a piece of electrical equipment typically containing electric wires, and will be sealed until the District’s 100th anniversary.

Dawson Public Power District is a Nebraska rural electric utility system that serves south central Nebraska along the Platte River Valley. Organized in 1937, Dawson PPD provides service to more than 23,000 electric meters and maintains over 5,800 miles of power lines. The district’s 5,000 square miles territory includes all of the rural areas in Dawson and Buffalo Counties, approximately two-thirds of Gosper County, a third of Lincoln County and parts of Custer, Sherman and Frontier Counties. Dawson PPD also serves several villages including Hershey, Maxwell, Brady, Farnam, Eustis, Elwood, Eddyville, Smithfield, Overton, Sumner, Miller, Riverdale, Amherst, Odessa and Pleasanton.

West Central Research & Extension Center
The 2017 Tree Care Workshops will be held statewide February 28 to March 22. They focus on the many benefits community trees provide and ways to both care for and use them. A new feature this year will be demonstrations of how wood from dead and dying trees can be utilized instead of hauled away and burned. Recent inventories reveal a decline in community trees statewide. In western Nebraska, ash trees have been rapidly declining from environmental causes. When the emerald ash borer reaches this part of the state many more ash trees will die. Tree selection and care is increasingly important for resilient community landscapes. For towns facing ash tree removal, the workshops will include a sawmill demonstration and sessions on producing biochar and using it and other types of wood waste. Other sessions focus on protecting tree roots during construction, environmental challenges to trees, and selecting trees appropriate for local conditions.

These workshops will be offered Feb. 28 in Alliance, March 1 in North Platte, March 2 in Ord, March 3 in Kearney, March 7 in Ithaca, March 21 in Norfolk and March 22 in Omaha.

The Nebraska Forest Service, in coordination with the Nebraska Statewide Arboretum, offers these annual training workshops for public works employees, landscape managers, tree board volunteers, arborists, nursery and green industry professionals and landscape enthusiasts. Cost of the full-day workshops is $45; for descriptions, discounts, locations and registration, go to: http://nfs.unl.edu/tree-care-workshops. For additional information, contact Amy Seiler at aseiler2@unl.edu or 308-633-1173, or Graham Herbst at gherbst2@unl.edu or 402-444-7875.
