Please Join LCCD for our Annual 2017 Lehigh County High School Envirothon!

High School Competition:  Tuesday, May 9th

Middle School Competition:   Thursday, May 11th

From 9:00 AM - 2:00 PM, each day

 At the Wildlands Conservancy in Emmaus, PA

 All Lehigh County high schools and middle schools are encouraged to compete: 

Envirothon is a fun, academic event that challenges teams of  high school and middle school students to learn practical concepts and application of environmental topics.  Students may work, in teams of five, with a team advisor to learn material in each of five ecology subjects:  Aquatics, Forestry, Wildlife, Soil & Land Use, and Current Issues (this year, the current them is Agricultural Soil and Water Conservation Stewardship).   This extra-curricular activity exposes students to a range of disciplines and potential career paths. Students develop study skills, practice effective teamwork, and learn natural resource management and ecology.  The overall winning team of the county competition moves on to the state level (held this year at University of Pittsburg, Johnstown, PA) to compete for scholarships.
