in Anne Arundel County for the 9th straight year!
Students meet every other Tuesday after school to prepare for the annual Anne Arundel County Envirothon Competition, in which students test their knowledge and skills in analyzing environmental indicators. The topics include wildlife, forestry, soils and aquatics, plus one specialty area per year.
Envirothon is a fun and exciting way to learn about the natural world around us. The team studies Maryland’s natural resources over the course of a school year.
In the spring, they battle for the county Envirothon title. The county winner then advances to the statewide Maryland Envirothon. This two day competition is usually held in June and features a number of outdoor activies, including night hikes, campfire chats and wildlife demonstrations, along with additional training in five resource areas. The winner of the Maryland Envirothon earns the right to represent the state at the Canon Envirothon.
