What is Envirothon? Over the year, students will study Maryland’s natural resources that consist of aquatics, wildlife, forestry, and soil that teach students about problems affecting our local and global environment. It is an academic competitive club sponsored by the Harford Soil Conservation District. At the end of the season, we compete with other schools in Harford County in a final test of our knowledge for the county title.  

They take field trips, too! Envirothon recently visited Harford Glen for a presentation about climate change on Saturday, January 14.

Ms. Tyler Hamilton and Ms. Jordan Long co-advise the club and attend every meeting. In this club, there are currently two teams, an A team, and a B team, both teams consist of 5 members, and we have two official alternates. The club has more members than that, so they try to pick the best representatives from the group of students that meet regularly. Which is alternating Wednesday and Thursday in B308 (Mrs. Long’s room). 

Ms. Hamilton expressed that she is “most excited for our outdoor training times. All the Envirothon teams in Harford County get to meet up at outdoor parks to learn directly from earth science experts.” Tyler Kirk, who is a participant and student in the Envirothon club, shared “I really enjoy being a part of Envirothon club.” 

If you are looking to learn about topics that are very hands-on and include practical skills taught by experts in each field, Envirothon is for you!
