The 2023 High School Envirothon will be held April 28th at Nolde Forest
This is a fun, academic event where high school students compete in environmental topics. It is the only one in the nation that challenges students to think critically about the natural world and their role in it. The teens who participate in these events will develop the necessary skills to face the adult problems of finding a balance between economic development and preservation and conservation of our natural resources.
The Envirothon is the most popular high school environmental knowledge competition in North America. Every spring teams of five students come to the Berks County Envirothon at Nolde Forest Environmental Education Center to compete for the opportunity to go on to the PA Envirothon and the Canon Envirothon where they may win scholarships and prizes.
Students are rigorously tested in areas of aquatics, wildlife, soils and land use, forestry and a current environmental topic.
Personnel from the Pennsylvania Bureau of Forestry, Pennsylvania Game Comission, Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission, Natural Resources Conservation Service, and the Conservation District administer tests at each subject station.
