A Natural Challenge for High School Students: Envirothon 2015.

The Envirothon event is North America’s largest and most academically challenging high school environmental competition. The goal of Envirothon is to enhance students’ environmental literacy and enable them to make informed decisions regarding the environment. Envirothon is a TEAM competition. Through several months of study, teams of five students prepare themselves for testing in wildlife biology, forestry, aquatics, soil science, and a current environmental issue. At Envirothon, teams must work together to answer knowledge-based questions in outdoor field-testing stations and also apply that knowledge to solve real-life problems.  more

Colorado Project Learning Tree envisions a future where citizens of all ages understand, appreciate and responsibly care for our natural world.   We strive to accomplish this by providing science-based information, experiences, materials and activities for educators to share with their learners. Our program is a collaboration of many partners, including the National PLT staff and their national operating committee;  the American Forest Foundation; PLT coordinators and educators from around the country; federal, state and local agencies; environmental and conservation organizations; universities and camps; industries and individuals; school districts; educators; volunteers; and Colorado PLT facilitators and advisors.

Colorado adopted Project Learning Tree in 1976, and The Colorado State Forest Service, a division of the Warner College of Natural Resource at Colorado State University, uses its award-winning and highly acclaimed activities to  help achieve its mission.
