"... a unique and enjoyable experience designed to stimulate, reinforce, and enhance interest in the environment and natural resources among high school students."

What is the Envirothon? 

A competitive outdoor team event, the Envirothon tests students' knowledge of soils, forestry, wildlife, aquatic ecology, and current environmental issues. In addition, the Envirothon encourages cooperative decision making and team building. A team consists of 5 students all from the same high school. An adult advisor(s) must accompany the team, but is not permitted to assist the team during the competition. The winners of this Area II Envirothon will compete in the Ohio Envirothon Contest held in June, 2017.

The Area II Envirothon will be held May 3, 2017 at the Buffalo Creek Retreat
8708 Hubbard Valley Road Seville, Ohio.
This year's current environmental issue is "Agricultural Soil and Water Conservation Stewardship"
