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 with questions about participating in next years Envirothon!

A school year of preparation paid off for high school students who were rewarded for their knowledge of the environment at the 26th Annual New York State Envirothon.  More than 215 high school students from 43 different communities across New York State competed at Hobart and William Smith Colleges on May 27th and 28th. Our local Monroe County team from Eastridge High School placed 7th overall and tied for the top score in the Aquatic Ecology topic.  A wonderful achievement!
