The Envirothon is a high-school event involving teams that compete in five environmental topics: Aquatics, Forestry, Soils, Current Issues, and Wildlife. Here at the District, we hold a series of workshops each Spring to help prepare team members with exam topics. Each team member receives a certificate of participation, a t-shirt, and the benefit of developing a higher level of environmental awareness. Contact Karen Ervay or Josh LaFountain with questions about participating in next years Envirothon!
