Wyoming Conservation Voters Education Fund is an educational service for Wyoming voters who want to protect our wildlife, clean air and water, healthy communities and open spaces by getting more involved in civic life. The WCV Education Fund (WCVEF) was created in 2000 as a vehicle to move Wyoming policy in a pro-conservation direction driven by the people. WCVEF focuses exclusively on engaging citizens and groups to work directly with decision-makers to have a voice in the decision making process.
WCVEF educates, motivates and provides capacity for Wyoming citizens and conservation organizations to protect and improve our land, air, water and health of our communities through civic action. WCVEF is headquartered in Casper, Wyo., with additional management and field staff located in Lander, Wyo. This is the third candidate forum WCVEF has held in Sublette County over the past two years for local elections.
