The Thurston Conservation District hosts the South Puget Sound Regional Envirothon competition annually each spring at the Billy Frank Jr. Nisqually National Wildlife Refuge.
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 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
For Teachers – Details of the 2018 Envirothon (including the current environmental issue) will be made available shortly. If you are interested in bringing a team (or teams) to the regional Envirothon, or have questions, please contact us!
