Resources for Youth

Find Your Career Pathway

Discover Your Forest wants every student to be prepared for their career in Natural Resources. Each year we partner with the Deschutes and Ochoco National Forest and other organizations to host the Central Oregon National Resources Career Field Day, USAJOBS Workshops, and more! The goal is for youth to connect with the U.S. Forest Service, State and National Parks, BLM, Heart of Oregon Corps, Central Oregon Youth Conservation Corps, Children’s Forest of Central Oregon, Bend Parks and Rec, and others to get a hands-on approach to navigating pathways to careers in Natural Resources. Learn what it takes to thrive in the career from industry experts and participate in a number of skills-based workshops, trainings, and lectures. We want you to succeed!
