Hey Facebook Friends,
Two requests... We need names of people who have competed in the Georgia Envirothon at any point in time over the last 19 years to send friend requests to. Can you help?
Second, We need volunteers to help work/put together the 2014 North American Envirothon which is to be held at UGA in late July of 2014. Anybody out there want to become part of the steering committee for it? We need committed people. Perhaps your business would like to be a financial supporter and end up on the sponsor list.
Be in touch! Help us build this page!

General information

The Georgia Envirothon, offered in cooperation with the North American Envirothon, is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization established in 1995 to provide hands-on, science-based training in natural resources and ecology to high school students in a challenging, fun, and competitive outdoor experience. It creates a completely unique educational opportunity for high school students and is the only environmental curriculum with a major emphasis on connecting students/teachers with environmental professionals. The competition is centered on ecosystem planning and management in four universal testing categories (i.e., soils/land use, aquatic ecology, forestry, and wildlife) and a current environmental issue. The Envirothon program is an effective educational tool, capable of supplementing environmental education both inside and outside the classroom. Led by a volunteer advisor, teams usually meet from late autumn until spring. Teams work collaboratively to develop their knowledge of ecology and natural resource management and to practice their environmental problem-solving skills in preparation for Envirothon competitions.
