The Envirothon is a series of events in which teams of high school students compete by answering questions about five environmental topics: Aquatics, Forestry, Soils, Current Issues, and Wildlife. Teams also prepare a short oral presentation based off of the Current Issue topic each year. Winners at the county level advance to represent their district in the State competition!

Here at the District, we hold a series of workshops each spring to help prepare our local team members for exam topics. Each team member receives a certificate of participation, a t-shirt, and the benefit of developing a high level of environmental awareness. Contact our office (mcswcd@monroecounty.gov) or (585) 753-7380 with questions about participating in future Envirothon events!
