Natural Resource Competition for High School Students
The Envirothon is North America’s leading environmental education competition, with an estimated 500,000 high school students in the United States and Canada demonstrating their knowledge and problem-solving skills on the topics of aquatic ecology, forestry, soils/land use, wildlife, and a current issue.
The annual Envirothon is an excellent opportunity for students to cultivate new skills and learn about resource conservation career opportunities.
