Congratulations to our 2017 Florida team - Academy of Environmental Science's Majestic Sea Flap Flaps! They did a great job at the 2017 National Conservation Foundation's North American Envirothon competition in Maryland.
We are in the process of building the new Florida Envirothon website (http://flenvirothon.com/). Until then, the 2017 Florida Envirothon event information will be on this page. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause you.
A map of participating counties will be uploaded after mid-January.
The competition is centered on five universal testing categories:
AQUATIC ECOLOGY - Water ecology, water chemistry, plants and animals living in or around water, water quality, water conservation, etc.
CURRENT ENVIRONMENTAL ISSUE - A topic selected annually by the Regional or State or Envirothon Planning Committees. Most years the Regional and Florida Envirothon Committees select the same topic as the National Committee.
FORESTRY - Forest ecology, tree identification, insects, diseases, timber measurements, forest management, urban forestry, forest economics, etc.
SOIL & LAND USE - Classification, soil formation, basic chemical and physical properties, profiles, soil characteristics, soil surveys, site suitability, erosion, land use, conservation practices, etc.
Identification, habitat, foods, diseases, rules and regulations, management, invasives, etc.
In order to get to the national competition, teams have to win first their regional competition and then their state competition.
