• What is Envirothon?NC Envirothon Logo

    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!

    We'd love for you to join!
