The 2016

North American


Every year, 500,000 students, teachers and families across North

America take part in the unique learning experience of Envirothon.

The program engages high-school students in learning more about

four main areas of the environment—soils, water, wildlife and forests.

Students learn in the classroom and through interactive workshops

aimed at strengthening scientific knowledge of our natural

ecosystems and helping develop foundational skills needed to pursue

studies and careers in the environmental sciences.

The program supports students in developing:

• A scientific understanding of natural

ecosystems (soils, wildlife, forests, aquatics).

• Each year, the host determines a fifth

subject area that is timely and relevant.

For 2016, the fifth subject area will

be Invasive Species: A Challenge to the

Environment, Economy and Society.

• Practical experience in resource

management practices and technologies.

• The ability to apply scientific knowledge

and creativity in developing innovative

and sustainable solutions to major

environmental challenges.

• Stronger communication, collaboration

and problem solving skills.

North American Envirothon (NAE) partners with

56 provinces and states that coordinate events

in which students receive training in essential

resource management technologies and practices

such as invasive species monitoring, habitat

restoration, water and soil analysis, and forest

management. Students are then tested on their

ability to apply these practices. The 2016 NAE

will bring together the top performing schools

from these regions to compete for the North

American Championship title.
