Event Details

During this WENformation Wednesday we welcome Courtney Raker, Pennsylvania Envirothon's Executive Director, to discuss this program that empowers the youth of PA.

Hundreds of teachers and professionals throughout Pennsylvania guide high school students through this natural resource environmental education program that combines classroom learning and outdoor activities. This exposure to nature and seeing how humans impact the natural world provide invaluable lessons for understanding ecosystems and our environment.

At the Envirothon, teams of five high school students compete in field testing using their knowledge in five topic areas – Soils and Land Use, Aquatic Ecology, Forestry, Wildlife, and Environmental Issues. A current environmental issue is chosen each year as the "hot topic" for the focus of this station as well as the oral presentation component.

Please come prepared to discuss how energy industries can support the program and spread the word about PA Envirothon!
