The Envirothon NB Experience
As teams prepare for the annual Provincial high school competition in May, Envirothon NB participants gain valuable knowledge and training in ecology and natural resource management principles and practices. Many students step away from the Envirothon experience excited about learning and motivated to pursue careers in environmental studies, environmental law, natural sciences, and natural resource management.
- Students gain current, practical knowledge of local ecosystems and sustainability issues from environmental professionals.
- Students increase their understanding of basic science concepts in the areas of forests, wildlife, soils and aquatic ecology.
- Students gain a practical understanding of the impact of human activities on the environment and avenues of minimizing negative effects.
- Envirothon creates a forum for middle and high school students to explore environmental issues from a variety of viewpoints with their peers, natural resources professionals and community leaders.
