ConVal High School Teams Compete In Envirothon

On Tuesday, May 16, ConVal’s Envirothon Team took a field trip to the New Hampshire Technical Institute (NHTI) in Concord to participate in the New Hampshire Envirothon competition. The competition tests the students’ knowledge in such areas as forestry, soil and land use, wildlife, aquatic ecology, and current environmental issues.

“This year, we sent two competing teams of five members each,” said Andria Johnson, the advisor for the Envirothon co-curricular. “They had a great time! At the end, before awards, they did a little senior sendoff and gave them all honor cords.” 

The photos show ConVal Envirothon team members at the wildlife station where they had to identify animal pelts, scat, and tracks. Each team also had to give an oral presentation regarding climate change and how we adapt. 

Since 1991, the New Hampshire Envirothon has supported student growth and inquiry in Environmental Science, Natural Resource conservation, and STEM education under the direction of the New Hampshire Association of Conservation Districts (NHACD)
