The 2020 Regional, State and National Envirothon were cancelled due to COVID-19. In 2021 the Envirothon was held “virtually”. Plans are underway for the 2022 event which will be held In-person!
Oxford County SWCD is hosting the Southwestern Maine Regional Envirothon at Valentine Farm (Mahoosuc Land Trust) in Bethel, Maine, in May.
Envirothon is a state and nationwide natural resource problem-solving competition for grades 9-12. Students compete outdoors in five natural resource areas: aquatics, forestry, soils, wildlife and a current national environmental issue. The teams are led by volunteer advisors who help students prepare for the tests. Winning teams from all over the state will meet to compete at the state level.
