The Envirothon is a natural resource program designed to challenge 5th -12th grade students in an interactive, outdoor competition where teams are tested in areas of aquatics, wildlife, forestry, soils and land use, and current environmental issues.
Teams first compete at the Area level which includes: Rowan, Iredell, Davie, Davidson, Cleveland, Stanly, Anson, Union, Gaston, Mecklenburg, and Lincoln counties. Seven teams may advance to the State level, and winners from that may advance to the NCF Envirothon which includes teams from across the country, China, and Canada.
How do I start a team?
Teams must be groups of 3-5 students who learn and practice together. They may include FFA students, groups of students from the same school, scouts, 4H, or home-school students. If your child is interested in being on a team, but cannot find a team within their school or club they may join the Rowan Outdoor Environmental Club.
All teams must have an adult advisor. The advisor must notify Kelli Isenhour about the team so she can make sure the team is informed of all rules and regulations, and is registered for the competition.
