2019 Envirothon

Genesee County Envirothon 

Envirothon is national high school scholastic competition, with the regional portion hosted annually at Genesee County Park & Forest. It is a great way for students to learn more about natural resources and conservation! 

Student teams learn from professionals through various outdoor workshops and hands-on activities. They have the chance to dig in the soil, identify trees, and examine pelts, feathers, and mounts. Teams then compete by taking team examinations on the material taught in the workshops and presenting their solution to the current issue topic. 

The winning team is awarded based on average highest score and qualifies to compete in the New York State Envirothon Competition.
