Teton Conservation District

The mission of the TCD is to promote conservation and management of natural resources through watershed-based research, education, conservation practices, cooperative projects, and on-the-ground actions to ensure the health, safety and general welfare of the people and resources of this area.

Within the Teton Conservation District’s mission, the importance of community education and information is emphasized.  The District believes that information about conservation issues is vital to the well-being of the community and its resources.  It is implicitly recognized that information and education are support activities that are elemental to the successful attainment of our goals.

TCD provides services and programs as authorized by Wyoming State Statue 11-16-122 and is funded by a publicly approved mill levy, partnering funds and resources, and project grant funds. The TCD five member publicly elected Board of Supervisors provides fiscal and program policy oversight and direction as well as directly participates in TCD activities and programs.

TCD staff implements District programs and report to the Board of Supervisors on a monthly basis. TCD is a member of the 34 conservation districts in the state that comprise the Wyoming Association of Conservation Districts and works cooperatively with numerous federal, state, and local agencies. We are a "sister agency" to the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), which is located within the same office here in Jackson.

It is the FUNCTION of the Teton Conservation District to provide locally led leadership, to encourage, promote and inform through education, the conservation of natural resources.  The Teton Conservation District is also charged with assisting landowners and land managers in practicing good natural resource stewardship and conservation for the long term benefit of the people by using monitoring, partnerships, staffing resources, and the taxpayer’s money as efficiently and effectively as possible.
