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 topic.

The annual Envirothon is an excellent opportunity for students to cultivate new skills and learn about resource conservation career opportunities.
