Envirothon gets students outdoors, to experience nature first hand and hands on! Envirothon is a unique team competition that rewards students for learning about the natural world around them. Local conservation organizations partner to provide students with interactive field trips and workshops to help them understand forests, soils, wildlife, aquatic ecosystems and the human impact on all of the things we value in nature. Envirothon uses field testing to develop critical thinking, problem solving, teamwork and communication skills.
The Ontario Envirothon builds environmental awareness and leadership among young people through practical, hands-on educational experiences, enabling them to make informed, responsible decisions that benefit the earth and society.
