2017 Wisconsin Envirothon

The 2017 Wisconsin Envirothon was held in Rosholt, Wisconsin at the Wisconsin Lions Camp on Friday, April 7, 2017. Schools from across the state spent a beautiful 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 and 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 - Agricultural Soils and Water Conseration Stewardship.

Scores were totaled for each category and the overall winner with highest combined score competed in the 2017 NCF-Envirothon.
