Supervisor Elections
Each Conservation District is run by a 5 member Board of Supervisors. These Supervisors are elected during the general election. There are 3 rural members, 1 urban and 1 at large member on each District Board. These Supervisors serve voluntarily. Persons interested in filing for election should contact their local conservation district.

Conservation District Funding
In 1987, the Wyoming State Legislature granted Conservation Districts the authority to tax up to one mill. Since that time, several Districts have obtained mill levy funding. Several Districts have also received the support of their County Commissioners and therefore have opted not to request mill levy funding. The Conservation Districts utilize their local funding to address publicly identified priority programs and concerns. Those programs initiated by Districts vary dependent on local needs. Currently, local people support conservation efforts to the tune of approximately $2 million.

Conservation District and Special District Training Modules and Information
The Wyoming Association of Conservation Districts with the help of the Wyoming Department of Agriculture has developed a training program for conservation district supervisors and employees. If interested in having WACD/WDA representatives conducting training for your district, please allow at least 6-8 hours to complete the training for all the modules.
