Envirothon

The 2017 New Mexico Envirothon

Save the dates: April 21-23, 2017
Location :El Porvenir Christian Camp, Montezuma, NM

Envirothon is a hands-on environmental problem solving competition for high school-age students in the United States and Canada. Participating teams compete in five natural resource categories: soils and land use, aquatic ecology, forestry, wildlife, and current environmental issues.

Teams of 5 students must prepare themselves for this two-day outdoor competition held in April. Teams work to answer natural resource questions and develop solutions to environmental problems.

The New Mexico Envirothon consists of two components. At the outdoor competition, students conduct a series of in-field investigations followed by testing, which includes multiple choice, true/false, and short answer questions in each of the five subject areas. Second, the oral presentation component presents students with a real-world resource problem. They must develop a management strategy to address the problem and present their solution to a panel of judges.

We are actively searching for volunteers. Learn more- contact Peter Vigil at tswcd@newmex.com work: 575-751-0584 or cell: 575-770-5124.
