Junior / Senior Envirothon

The Envirothon is a competition where groups of five students representing schools from our community are tested on their knowledge of Minnesota's natural resources. Topics include forestry, soils, wildlife, and current environmental issues that change from year to year. The competition teaches the students about the environment and how they can become involved in protecting our natural resources now as students, and later as adults.
