Land and Water Conservation Board

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​The Land and Water Conservation Board connects local and state governments on conservation and farmland preservation issues. The board:

  • Reviews county land and water plans and makes recommendations
  • Recommends how the Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection should allocate conservation funds to counties
  • Approves releases from farmland preservation agreements (if signed before July 1, 2009)
  • Provides a forum to discuss emerging soil and water conservation issues
The LWCB has 11 members: 3 each from county land conservation committees and state agency leaders, one Governor-appointed member serving a two-year term, and 4 Governor-appointed members representing urban, rural, river management and natural resource preservation interests. Mark Cupp is the current chair.
