A Program of the National Conservation Foundation
Mission: NCF-Envirothon educates students about the environment and conservation of natural resources through hands-on outdoor experiences, academic study and collaborative competitions.
How do we balance quality of life and the quality of the environment?
Each year over 25,000 high school students across the United States, Canada and China embark on a journey to offer solutions to this critical question through the NCF-Envirothon!
The Envirothon® is an environmental and natural resource conservation problem-solving, teambuilding and leadership experience and competition for high school students (grades 9-12 or ages 14-19) across the United States, Canada, and China. Incorporating STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) principles, experiential learning and hands-on outdoor field experiences, the Envirothon fosters student learning in the areas of AQUATIC ECOLOGY, FORESTRY, SOILS and LAND USE, WILDLIFE, and CURRENT ENVIRONMENTAL ISSUES.
Students are challenged to develop critical thinking skills to create inventive solutions to the complex local and global environmental and natural resource issues facing our world today. With the Envirothon, students are empowered to educate others, take action in their local communities, pursue higher academic study in environmental disciplines, and to work toward careers in the environment, natural resources and conservation.
The Envirothon is managed and directed by National Conservation Foundation and its NCF-Envirothon Operating Committee. Read more here!
