2017 FLORIDA

ENVIROTHON PAGE

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.

The tentative agenda will be available soon. There will probably be some special additions on Friday afternoon/evening, so be sure to check back to check it out - we hope to see you there!
For those of you who win your regional competitions, we will email you information.

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.
Study information: Aquatic Study Guide

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.
Study Information: NAE Current Competition Current Topic Resources, APHIS International Services Screwworm Information, New World Screwworm Factsheet

FORESTRY - Forest ecology, tree identification, insects, diseases, timber measurements, forest management, urban forestry, forest economics, etc.
Study Information: Forestry Study Guide
