    Envirothon

    The Pennsylvania Envirothon competition allows high school students from all 67 counties the opportunity to learn about our natural resources through a combination of classroom learning and outdoor activities. Envirothon stations consist of aquatics, forestry, soils, wildlife and a current environmental topic that changes each year. The Pennsylvania Game Commission facilitates the wildlife portion of the contest. These three videos can help students to prepare for the wildlife portion of the contests.
