In even-numbered years, WLWCA is responsible for holding elections for three members to serve on the state Land and Water Conservation Board (LWCB). Each area is encouraged to nominate one candidate to serve on the LWCB. The LWCB is attached to the Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection (DATCP) and advises DATCP and the Department of Natural Resources (DNR). They connect local and state governments on conservation and farmland preservation issues. Chapters 91, 92 and 281.65 of the Wisconsin statutes further delineate the LWCB’s program authorities and responsibilities.
The LWCB is composed of three state agency leaders; one Governor-appointed member that serves a two-tear term; four Governor-appointed members representing urban, rural, river management and natural resource preservation areas; and three members of county land conservation committees.
