What is Envirothon?
Envirothon is an extracurricular, competition-based natural resources and environmental education program. It focuses on five main curriculum areas: aquatic ecology, current environmental issues, forestry, wildlife, and soils/land use. We’ll learn a lot about North Carolina's unique habitats and how we monitor them!
Envirothon meets once a week on Wednesday afternoons from 3:15-4:15 pm.
In our meetings we have snacks, review sessions, fun hands-on lessons, and guest speakers who visit to present programs. We also take field trips (for example, to the Jordan Lake Educational State Forest and the Haw River)!
Envirothon is great preparation for science courses in high school and beyond, and introduces students to a variety of very exciting and important career opportunities!

Students who are interested should email or speak with Ms. Purvis (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Mr. Tomlin (email@example.com).
We'd love for you to join!
