The Laramie County Conservation District’s five-member volunteer Board of Supervisors is the key to the District’s success. Each board member serves a four year term. The Board is comprised of three rural (living outside of a municipality,) one urban (living inside of a municipality,) and one at-large (either rural or urban) member. The residents of Laramie County elect the board members during the general election.

The Board sets policy for LCCD programs and projects to give direction to the staff of resource experts that carry out the day-to-day activities. The Board welcomes public input and meets at the Conservation District office the third Thursday of each month at 4 pm.  To review the most recently approved minutes, click on the link below:
