Forest County Envirothon



The Tri-County Envirothon was held on Tuesday, May 7, 2019.  This annual event was held at the Jefferson County Fairgrounds in Brookville and sponsored by the Clarion County Conservation District (CCCD), Forest County Conservation District (FCCD) and Jefferson County Conservation District (JCCD).

Students used study materials provided to them by the Pennsylvania Envirothon to prepare for the event.  Study information is located on the website.  

 The day of the event, tests are completed and scored at each of the 5 stations.  At the Forestry station, they identify and measure different kinds of trees and shrubs and answer various questions relating to our forests.  The soils station requires the students to use a soil profile and identify different types of soil.  The students are quizzed in the Aquatics station on their knowledge of fish and aquatic life.  The Wildlife Station tests the students on identifying wildlife and bird calls.  The fifth station is a special station that changes each year.  "Agrictulture and the Environment:  Knowledge and Technology to Feed the World" was the special station for this year’s Envirothon. 

West Forest Team A won Fourth Place at the Tri-County Envirothon and represented Forest County at the State Envirothon at the University of Pittsburgh Johnstown.
