NCF-Envirothon - University of Delaware (UD) College of Agriculture and Natural Resources:
College and Careers Showcase
Each year thousands of students from across the U.S., Canada and China participate in Envirothon. Students can be found getting their hands dirty in a soil pit, measuring the basal area of a tree, collecting macroinvertebrates in a stream to determine water quality, identifying wildlife signs and many other activities used by natural resource professionals day-to-day. Through Envirothon, students are introduced to a wide array of career opportunities in environmental, natural resource and conservation fields – finding a passion they want to turn into a career.
To help Envirothon students navigate the next steps in their journey, the NCF-Envirothon is partnering with the University of Delaware (UD) College of Agriculture and Natural Resources on a College and Career Showcase on Wednesday, March 16, 2022, at 7:00pm EDT. The Showcase will introduce students to a variety of possibilities and opportunities that will enable them to take their Envirothon knowledge to the next level.
In this virtual showcase, students will hear from professors and students from three UD departments — Plant and Soil Sciences, Entomology and Wildlife Ecology, and Applied Economics and Statistics. They will discuss how UD majors like wildlife ecology and conservation, sustainable food systems, environmental and resource economics, and many others align with the values and goals of Envirothon. Students will hear from past Envirothon participants who are current students or faculty of UD, learning about their Envirothon experience and the road that lead them to find their passion in a career in the environment and natural resources.
All high school students are invited to attend to learn how to turn their passion for the environment and natural resources into action, education, and employment opportunities.
