This countywide event challenges students to think critically about the natural world and their roles in it. Envirothon combines in-class curriculum and outdoor training, helping students learn more about aquatic ecology, forestry, soil and land use, wildlife and current environmental issues. Exposure to nature and our impact on the natural world provide invaluable lessons for understanding our environment.
Participating students often pursue further education in environmental fields.
Many Envirothon advisors credit the event with increasing student interest and involvement in environmental sciences.
Competition day offers the opportunity to boost resumes and interact with environmental agency professionals.
