In 1997, SCCD initiated a membership/contribution campaign to provide an opportunity for local residents to show their support for natural resources in Sheridan County. Since that time, over $40,000 has been donated to the District by private citizens. Each year, the SCCD sets an annual membership goal of $5000. You can help reach this year's goal by submitting the 2019 Pledge Form.
SCCD is one of 34 conservation districts in Wyoming. Each district has a unique program tailored to meet the specific natural resource needs of its district. Wyoming conservation districts are funded through a variety of sources; the SCCD is funded primarily through state and federal grants, with some additional support from Sheridan County, local municipalities, and private citizens. Local funding means local accountability and provides the District with more flexibility to meet the unique needs of Sheridan County.
Funds raised through membership donations are critical to the overall function of the District, serving as match for grants, as well as providing for administrative services, technical assistance, and information and education. In particular, membership donations can be used to fund activities and services not supported by existing grants.
