Students work alongside aquatic biologists
to assess the quality of delicate aquatic
ecosystems. They also learn to identify
aquatic organisms, manage watersheds,
and determine non-point source pollution.
With the guidance of professional foresters,
students learn basic forestry principles
and practices – from tree identification
to forest structure and dynamics.
Professional soil scientists help students
learn about soil structure, interpret maps,
and evaluate land forms and soil characteristics
that affect agricultural and development issues.
A favorite for many Envirothon participants,
students learn first hand from wildlife experts
about animal populations, their dynamics, and
the importance of habitat conservation.
Challenged by field professionals, students
work as a team to explore the important
facets of current environmental issues.
