Envirothon is an extra-curricular opportunity for students how to be stewards of the environment.

The NH Envirothon is:

  • An academic and practical environmental program.
  • A hands-on, skill-based training presented in a teacher-guided, student-led manner.
  • Networking with Natural Resource professionals.
  • A school team that trains locally, then competes state-wide.
  • Learning about nature in New Hampshire.
  • Supported by various web and live trainings.
  • Builds confidence, teamwork, and life-long skills. 

Students work and compete as a team of five. Skills are learned throughout the year but last a lifetime. Students learn skills and science concepts focused on five environmental categories:

  • Aquatic Ecology
  • Forestry
  • Soils and Land Use
  • Wildlife
  • Current Environmental Issues

The state competition is held annually in May. Winners of the state competition earn a spot at the July North American NCF Envirothon competition.

The mission of the Envirothon Team is to develop knowledgeable, skilled, and dedicated citizens who have an understanding of natural resources and are prepared to work towards achieving and maintaining a balance between the quality of life and the quality of the environment.

This mission is accomplished by developing in students an understanding of the principles and practices of natural resource management as well as through practice in dealing with complex resource management decisions.
