The Thurston Conservation District hosts the South Puget Sound Regional Envirothon competition annually each spring. Teams of students from schools and clubs throughout a six county region come to compete in a variety of natural resource fields: aquatics, fish and wildlife, forestry, soils and give an oral presentation on that year’s current environmental issue. Winners from this competition advance to the Washington State Envirothon, which rotates throughout Washington, and eventually to the Canon Envirothon, spanning all of North America!
Teams from Grays Harbor, Kitsap, Lewis, Mason, Pierce and Thurston counties are eligible to compete in this regional event. Other regional competitions take place all across the state – to find out which regional your team is eligible for, visit: Washington Envirothon
Teachers – If you are interested in bringing a team (or teams) to the regional Envirothon, contact us immediately.
Students – please begin studying your natural resources (aquatics, soils, forestry, fish and wildlife) as well as the 2017 Envirothon current issue, Agricultural Soil and Water Conservation Stewardship
