Wisconsin Envirothon is our state’s ultimate middle and high school environmental science challenge where teams of five high school or middle school students participate in the hands-on,outdoor field challenges designed by natural resources professionals and educators.

The exams are based on four categories, Forestry, Soils/Land Use, Aquatic Ecology and Wildlife.The teams also participate in creating a group presentation based on a pre-selected conservation topic, a current issue local conservation professionals are dealing with across the state. The team presentations provide students an opportunity to articulate today’s critical environmental concerns and to develop the skills to communicate the conservation ethic in whatever scholastic, career or civic choices lie ahead.  This event offers an opportunity to start developing leadership skills to champion a more sustainable and environmentally aware community. Winners advance to the North American Envirothon /Regional Envirothon to compete in scholarships and prizes.
