CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - Residents might know about the Laramie County Conservation District because of its tree program, but the organization has been a part of the community for decades. Recently, with the help of Cheyenne LEADS, it broke ground on where its new headquarters will be located.

“This ensures that we’re able to own our property and put that tax based money back into Laramie County,” said LCCD District Manager, Shaun Kirkwood.

Kirkwood said their mission is to educate us on the natural resources that are a part of the Laramie County community.

“Natural resources are an everyday item, you utilize natural resources in everything you do so if we can educate the community on natural resources and how to wisely use natural resources, that’s our benefit. That’s our mission and our goal statement.”

The new headquarters, especially with the natural area surrounding it, helps LCCD continue that education even more.

“The area is going to turn into a natural resource area that is all about education. It’s about static viewing and being out with mother nature but it’s all about education, education is the idea behind the natural area.”

Kirkwood said the whole LCCD team is excited for what the coming months have in store, and look forward to continuing to show the community what the area has to offer.
