Envirothon

The Envirothon is a high-school event involving teams that compete in five environmental topics: Aquatics, Forestry, Soils, Current Issues, and Wildlife. Here at the District, we hold a series of workshops each Spring to help prepare team members with exam topics. Each team member receives a certificate of participation, a t-shirt, and the benefit of developing a higher level of environmental awareness. Contact Karen Ervay with questions about participating in next years Envirothon!

The 2013 Monroe County Envirothon was held at Ellison Park on May 2nd. Students competed in five different catagories: soils, aquatics, forestry, wildlife, rangeland management (this year's current issue topic), and oral presentations. Participating high schools included: Brighton High School, Brockport High School, Churchville-Chili High School, Eastridge High School, Northeast College Preperatory High School and Our Lady of Mercy High School. The winning team overall was Brighton High School Team #2 who will go on to compete in the State Envirothon, which occurs on May 30th and 31st, 2013 at SUNY-Morrisville.
