The Skagit Conservation District offers natural resource related presentations to students from K-12.
High school academic competition in environmental/resource topics for grades 9 - 12.
Envirothon is a problem-solving, natural resource competition for high school students. In the field, teams of students are challenged to hone critical thinking skills and work as a team to both answer written questions and conduct hands-on investigation of environmental issues in five categories - Aquatics, Soils & Land Use, Forestry, Wildlife, and Current Environmental Issues. A sixth component integrates all five test categories and requires teams to use an interdisciplinary approach to present an Oral Presentation on the Current Environmental Issues topic.

Youth Conservation Tour
The Skagit Youth Conservation Tour is designed to provide a fun and educational outdoor experience to local youth and inspire a better understanding of the watershed/human connection.
The tour consists of 6 stations hosted by local natural resource professionals who will guide students through entertaining educational activities focused on conservation of our natural resources.
