2016 Wisconsin Envirothon

The 2016 Wisconsin Envirothon was held at the Wisconsin Lions Camp on Friday, April 13 in Rosholt, Wisconsin. Schools from across the state spent a beautifulan spring day testing their knowledge at the various stations where they participated in multiple hands on challenges.

Students identified tree species and measured tree diameters in the woods and assessed the engineering and agronomic properties of soils at the Soils and Land Use Station. They also identified aquatic invertebrates, invasive plants, as well as wildlife pelts and tracks. Additionally, they tested their classroom knowledge on written exams and gave a team presentation based on this year’s current issue - Invasive Species: A Challenge to the Environment, Economy and Society.

Scores were totaled for each category and the overall winner with highest combined score competed in the 2016 NCF-Envirothon.

Thank you to our volunteers and sponsors for helping us make this a successful event!
