Envirothon

  • 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: soil/land use, aquatics, wildlife, forestry, and current environmental issues. Envirothon meets weekly on Wednesday afternoons from 3:10-4:15. Meetings primarily consist of guest presentations by local experts who reinforce information from the curriculum to help prepare students for competition. We also take field trips to the Jordan Lake Educational State Forest, the Haw River, the Museum of Natural Sciences, etc. Regional competition is held at Elon University in mid-March, and State competition is at Cedar Rock Park in Burlington.  Envirothon is great preparation for AP Environmental Science at Northwood and introduces students to a variety of exciting career opportunities.
