    This Reg would be somewhat applicable too

    001.14A The possession, destruction, injury, defacement, removal or disturbance in any manner of any building, sign, equipment, monument, statue, marker or other structure, or of any animal or plant matter and direct or indirect
    products thereof, including but not limited to petrified wood, flower, cane or other fruit, egg, nest, or nesting site, or of any soil, rock or mineral formation, artifact, relic, historic or prehistoric feature, or of any other public property of any kind without prior permission of the Superintendent is prohibited.

    Yeah, could be worse...they could prohibit MD'ing all together. I know several parks that I'd love to hit that have no beaches. Maybe someday

    I don't believe there are any such regulations on NRD beaches.

    Many NRD rec areas adopted the G&P regs, several NRD rec areas are directly controlled by G&P. Some NRD's have adopted NO MD'ing regs. Each district is different and you'll have to check to make sure.

    Omaha requires a metal detecting permit to hunt on city property. You can get it at the city parks deparment located at 24th and Hickory. Ballfields are off limits (just the fields themselves, not around them). No digging. No knife with a blade wider than 1 inch. No probe longer than, I believe, 8 or 9 inches

    Re: NE Game & Parks Regulations on Metal Detectors

    how did you even know that? I've done internet searches and can't find a thing on it. Is it posted somewhere?

    and can you tell me what a license costs? I'm assuming that they don't give 'em for free.
