About the Envirothon

     The Envirothon is a great outdoor experience for high school students to learn about natural resources.  Emphasizing  teamwork for success, four to five students in a team will answer 25 questions from each of the five stations, which include Soils, Wildlife, Forestry, Aquatics and the Current Events Station. The Current Event theme this year is "Water Resource Management: Local Control and Local Solutions". The teams also give an oral presentation on the current events problem. 

     The Envirothon is a favorite activity each year for students in Northwest Minnesota and most high schools in Roseau County participate. In our area, high school students from Roseau, Kittson, Marshall and Pennington Counties have participated.  We expect over 400 high school students to be attending this year, counting all three Area 1 Envirothon competitions - Agassiz National Wildlife Refuge (Middle River), Rydell National Wildlife Refuge (Erskine), and Prairie Wetlands Learning Center (Fergus Falls).

     The Envirothon for Roseau, Marshall, Kittson and Pennington Counties will be held at Agassiz National Wildlife Refuge on April 29.  The winning team will advance to the State Envirothon that will be held on May 18 at the Itasca Biological Station within Itasca State Park.

     The top three teams each receive a team trophy, and all team members and teacher receive medallions.  The winner of the oral presentation receives small individual trophies for each team member, and sweatshirts are given to team members and teachers of winning teams.  We provide coffee, juice, hot chocolate (weather dependent), muffins and donuts for everyone during registration, and lunch is provided consisting of a variety of subs, cookies, chips, pop, water, and milk.
