Youth Education & Outreach Program

The Youth Education & Outreach Program (YEOP) is a statewide effort of the Washington Department of Natural Resources to support K-12 educators and students. YEOP's vision: Through place-based, career-connected education on Washington’s state lands, students develop the skills and knowledge to manage lands and waters sustainably, empowering them to serve as effective stewards in their communities and pursue employment in the natural resource sector for the benefit of future generations.
