Students work alongside aquatic biologists to assess the quality of delicate aquatic ecosystems. They also learn to identify aquatic organisms, manage watersheds, and determine non-point source pollution.
With the guidance of professional foresters, students learn basic forestry principles and practices – from tree identification to forest structure and dynamics.
Professional soil scientists help students learn about soil structure, interpret maps, and evaluate land forms and soil characteristics that affect agricultural and development issues.
A favorite for many Envirothon participants, students learn first hand from wildlife experts about animal populations, their dynamics, and the importance of habitat conservation.
Challenged by field professionals, students work as a team to explore the important facets of current environmental issues.
The oral presentation challenges teams to work together and communicate their solution to a complex environmental issue in front of a panel of judges
Envirothon is a fun, academic event. It challenges high school students to think critically about the natural world and their role in it. Envirothon combines in-class curriculum and outdoor training helping students to learn more about Aquatic Ecology, Forestry, Soil & Land Use, Wildlife, and Current Environmental Issues.
