Agriculture & Natural Resource Career Pathways

 

Washington’s agriculture and natural resource industries require a highly skilled workforce, and continue to expand into practices and technologies that promote sustainability in our natural world and our global food supply.

Agriculture and Natural Resource based careers in Washington can be found on farms, in forests, on fishing vessels, in labs, and on salesroom floors.

Career pathways identify the knowledge and skill students need as they follow a pathway toward their career goal. The Agriculture & Natural Resource Career Clusters are divided into seven pathways, each grouped by common knowledge and skills required of occupations in the agriculture and natural resource career fields.

If you are interested in pursuing an educational pathway in agriculture or natural resources, ANR’s Pathways to Excellence Program Guide may be the resource you’ve been looking for!
