This is North America's largest high school natural resources competition. It combines in-class curriculum with hands-on field experiences, while demonstrating the role people have in important natural resources issues such as forestry, wildlife management, water quality and soil erosion. The five-member team must express a commitment to participate in the statewide competition by December 1 each year. At the completion of the learning process, the Envirothon conducts a series of competitions. This is a year-long learning process which culminates in the statewide competition.
