Laramie County Conservation District

The Laramie County Conservation District's mission is to provide Laramie County citizens with the necessary information and technical assistance to support sustainable production from soil and water resources, protect the county’s tax base, control flooding, improve air and water quality, increase wildlife habitat, and protect and promote the health and safety of Laramie County residents.

Services we provide:

  • Implement farm, ranch and forestland conservation practices to protect soil productivity, water quality and quantity, air quality and wildlife habitat;
  • Conserve and restore wetlands, which purify water and provide habitat for birds, fish and numerous other animals;
  • Protect groundwater resources;
  • Assist communities and homeowners to plant trees and other land cover to hold soil in place, clean the air, provide cover for wildlife and beautify neighborhoods;
  • Help developers control soil erosion and protect water and air quality during construction; and
  • Reach out to communities and schools to teach the value of natural resources and encourage conservation efforts.
  • Nationally and in Wyoming, conservation districts usually operate under the following general policies:
    • Conservation should be led by local citizens
    • The final responsibility for conservation lies with the landowner
    • Landowners have legitimate operating goals
    • Conservation Districts are responsive to both landowners and operators, and  the community as a whole
    • The best agricultural land should be maintained for agriculture
