Many of the Conservation Commission's programs include educational components for adults and/or students. Three programs whose primary focus is education are the following:
The Conservation Education Program, administered by the Conservation Programs Division, has been in existence since 1975. The main purpose of the Education Program is to educate Oklahomans of all ages about natural resources and the environment with an emphasis on soil and water. The Conservation Education Program also cosponsors environmental education programs with other state agencies and makes supplemental curricula available to educators.

The Blue Thumb Program is the educational arm of the Conservation Commission's Water Quality Division and includes a program for training volunteers in water quality monitoring.
