Youth Education

Educating young people about the resources they are connected to, and that we all depend on, is essential. Which is why Jackson SWCD offers youth programs and helps to support community groups and activities that provide natural resource and science education to the next generation of potential land stewards.

From training High School students to monitor water quality, to putting boots on elementary kids to slosh around in streams, we offer students hands-on experiences to discover their place within the amazing natural world around them. We also strive to support educators in providing opportunities for problem-solving and real-world examination of the way we as humans interact with our environment.
