What is the Envirothon?
The Envirothon is a problem-solving, hands-on natural resources education program for high school students. Teams of five students work and study under guidance of local and regional natural resource professionals to hone their knowledge of Maryland's natural resources and conservation efforts. The structure of the Envirothon program also encourages development of students problem solving, communications, team building, and decision making skills.
The overall goal of the Envriothon program is to stimulate the interest of the high school aged students in our natural resources, and to motivate them so they will evolve into environmentally aware, action oriented adults. In order to achive this, students take an in-depth at five natural resource areas: Aquatics, Forestry, Soils, Wildlife and a fifth area that incorperates a current environmental issues that change each year.
