Lincoln Conservation District

In 1941, the Wyoming State Legislature recognized the need for a local governmental entity which would assist landowners and resource users with conservation practices and provide leadership in natural resource management issues and efforts. As a result, legislation was enacted which enabled the formation of local Conservation Districts and the election of Conservation District Supervisors.

The overall goal of the Lincoln Conservation District covers three major areas of concern:

  • Quality of Life
    • The LCD is committed to the conservation and wise use of the soil, water, and related natural resources of southern Lincoln County in order to provide all of its residents an opportunity to live a healthy, happy, stable, and productive lifestyle. The LCD board members will do their best to provide the necessary leadership, promote good, sound, on the ground conservation practices, and will continue to provide a variety of educational training to accomplish this goal.
  • Community Natural Resource Management
    • The LCD will continue to work closely with local communities to assist, promote, and protect public lands and natural resources, soil, water and wildlife resources, to develop water, to prevent floods, to stabilize ranching and industry, to protect the tax base, and to provide for public safety, health, and welfare of district citizens.
  • Landscape
    • The LCD desires to develop an aesthetically pleasing place for local residents and visitors. Efforts will be initiated to develop a diversity of trees, shrubs, and grasses throughout all areas of the District, emphasizing the need to have open spaces along with residential and industrial development.

  • Ranchers
  • Individuals
