Converse County Conservation District
There were three conservation districts originally formed in Converse County. In 1947, both the LaPrele District and the Glenrock District were formed. These two districts consolidated in 1963. The third district, the Upper Cheyenne River District was formed in 1951. Then in 1979, one district was formed and became the Converse County Conservation District as it is known today.
The Converse County Conservation District is a locally led effort overseen by a locally elected board of five. Each supervisor is elected in the general election and serves a four year term on a voluntary basis. The board meets the third Thursday of each month, unless otherwise publicized. These are open meetings and the public is invited to attend. The district is funded primarily though a local mill levy tax and grant funds. Additional funding is acquired by the district’s equipment rental and seedling tree program.
