The North American Envirothon is coming to South Dakota. Teams of 5 high school students compete in knowledge and skills about wildlife, aquatic ecology, soils, forestry and a current issue.
The South Dakota Discovery Center in partnership with the Belle Fourche Watershed Project and Butte Conservation District will be coordinating the event for South Dakota students thanks to generous funding from the 319 Information and Education Project and the South Dakota Conservation Commission.
All teachers, FFA advisors, homeschool parents and 4H leaders are invited to get a team together in preparation for the practice competition on April 26 in Pierre. Stipends are provided for leaders.
One team from the practice competition will go to the North American competition in August. Travel funds are provided.
