Hurley brings more than 30 years of land use planning experience as a sole proprietor and a state and local government employee. He retired from his position as Principal Planner with Teton County Planning and Building in January 2019.

“The watershed-based mission of Teton Conservation District is of great importance to me because of the vital link between land use, wildlife, and our water resources,” Hurley said. “Based on working with Teton Conservation District in the past and in review of current and pending programs and projects, the areas dealing with Integrated Solid Waste and Recycling, land use, water quality, stormwater management, and wildlife habitat are of particular interest to me. I am honored to be selected to the Board of Supervisors.”

In addition to joining the Teton Conservation District board, Hurley volunteers for Jackson Hole Historical Society, Jackson Hole Wildlife Foundation, and Trout Unlimited.

Teton Conservation District board members are normally elected by district voters every four years, but can be appointed by the board and approved by the Wyoming Department of Agriculture when a board member cannot complete their term. Hurley was appointed to replace Bailey Schreiber as the urban representative on the board. Schreiber recently moved to Lander, Wyoming to own and manage Second Street Farm. She will continue to serve as the Natural Resource Counsel to the Wyoming County Commissioners Association. The board and staff are grateful to Schreiber for her four years of service to the district and the community.

Carlin Girard has served as Teton Conservation District’s Water Resources Specialist for the past five years. Girard will continue in his role as Water Resources Specialist, but has taken on additional responsibilities and the title of Associate Director.

“It’s an honor to represent an organization that’s focused on practical on-the-ground natural resource solutions, Girard said. This new position and my continued work for Teton Conservation District melds my interests and experiences—I feel fortunate such a unique and inspiring position exists for me in our community.”

Tom Segerstrom, Executive Director for Teton Conservation District said, “We want to recognize Carlin’s leadership and investment in the community on natural resources needs. I’m happy to have Carlin’s administrative assistance as Teton Conservation District’s presence grows in the community.”
