2018 Wisconsin Envirothon Winners

2018 WI Envirothon Winners
 

WI Land+Water's Envirothon, sponsored by the Outdoor Heritage Education Center and many other Wisconsin organizations was held in Rosholt, WI at The Wisconsin Lions camp on Friday, April 13, 2018. Schools from across the state spent a rainy, blustery spring day testing their knowledge at 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: Western Rangeland Management: Balancing Diverse Views.  Scores were totaled for each category and the overall high school winner with the highest combined score will move on to the national competition in July.
