The Southern Piedmont Envirothon is the first step

The NC Envirothon is an exciting natural resource education program designed to challenge students in an interactive, outdoor competition where middle and high school teams (consisting of 3-5 students) are tested in areas of Wildlife, Forestry, Aquatic Ecology, Soils and Land Use and Current Environmental Issues. Students participate in the SP Envirothon (area competition), with the top 7 teams going on to the state competition. The top team at state goes on to represent the state in the North American/ international contest.


The Goals and Objectives of Envirothon:

*to promote a desire to learn more about the natural environment, our natural resources & solving natural resource problems.

*to promote stewardship of our natural resources.

*to develop critical thinking skills, cooperative problem solving skills, & decision making skills of students in the protection, management & wise use of our natural resources.

*to provide students with experience in environmentally oriented activities to enable them to become environmentally aware, action oriented citizens.
