Promoting Wise Management of Natural Resources in Greene County, New York Since 1961

Envirothon2010-participants2010 Hundson Valley Regional Envirothon participantsThe District assists each year with the Hudson Valley Regional Envirothon which is held at Sharpe Reservation in Fishkill, NY.

The Hudson Valley Regional Envirothon is a hands-on environmental education competition where five-member teams of high school students from Columbia, Delaware, Dutchess, Greene, Orange, Putnam, Rockland, Sullivan, Ulster, and Westchester counties work together in hopes of winning scholarships and awards.

The teams compete in five different environmental categories: soils/land use, aquatic ecology, forestry, wildlife, and a current environmental issue.

The primary goal of the Envirothon is to learn about the natural environment we live in so as to become stewards of the land. In preparation for the event students develop research skills, practice team building, and gain an appreciation for consensus decision-making.

There is no cost to the students, parents, or school to participate in the Envirothon.

The winning team at the Hudson Valley Regional Envirothon moves on to compete in the New York State Envirothon.
