Do you know a high school student who is interested in learning more about the environment? Are they passionate, driven, and hard-working? Would they like a new way to expand their knowledge while working alongside other teens? The Virginia Living Museum Envirothon Team can offer just that!
What’s Envirothon, you ask? The Virginia Envirothon is a team-based natural resources competition open to public, private, and home school students currently in grades 9-12. Students who participate will learn stewardship, management, conservation, and scientific concepts while working to solve real world environmental problems.
Through hands-on experiences, field work, and research, the team will learn about and compete in five topic areas: Aquatics, Forestry, Soils, Wildlife, and a Special Topic which is introduced at the beginning of each competition season. The program is field-oriented, community based, and gives students an opportunity to learn from natural resource professionals.
VLM’s Envirothon Team is holding interest meetings on Tuesday 9/24 at 5:30 pm and Wednesday 9/25 at 3:30 pm.
If you have additional questions or are unable to attend either of the interest meetings, please contact the coach at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
