Montana Envirothon: April 29-30, 2019 Lewistown, MT
The Montana Envirothon assists high-school age students learn more about five different natural resource areas: Aquatics, Forestry, Soils, Wildlife, Range and a current environmental issue, which changes annually.
This program is sponsored by the Montana Association of Conservation Districts (MACD) and cooperating agencies. The Envirothon offers hands-on instruction and problem solving for environmentally concerned students.
Five-member teams made up of students from the same school enrolled in grades 9-12 compete locally and regionally with the winning team advancing to the state competition. The winning team from the Montana competition will go on to compete in the National Canon Envirothon.
Sponsorship is available through your local conservation district. The CD may fully or partially sponsor up to three Gallatin Valley teams.
