Sample NCF-Envirothon Test Questions

Testing at the NCF-Envirothon is not only designed to increase each student's level of environmental knowledge but also encourages the development of skills needed to analyze and apply information. NCF-Envirothon test questions involve much more than rote memorization. They often incorporate questions that involve hands-on skills and encourage students to apply their knowledge of ecology and natural resource management to site-specific problems.

The sample questions below are actual questions used in recent Envirothon competitions. While many questions may be site-specific, the tests should provide you with a general indication of what to expect at the NCF-Envirothon.
