July 24–29, 2016
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
• 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.
