Skagit STEAM Educator Resource Guide
The Skagit STEAM Educator Resource Guide is a new resource that provides a comprehensive listing of Environmental and Conservation Education Opportunities for K-12 Youth in the Skagit Watershed. The goal of the new resource guide is to assist in achieving an environmentally-literate student population by offering quality education opportunities in science, technology, engineering, art, and math that can extend the teaching resources available in local schools and other children’s programs. The Resource Guide includes a comprehensive listing of conservation and environmental education programs currently offered by community partners in the Skagit Watershed. Over 50 programs offered by more than 20 local community groups have been compiled to produce this new Resource Guide for educators.

College is only one path to prepare our children for life and success. Powerful learning how businesses can be creator of talent not consumers of talent.
