|DuBois Area High School envirothon team is sharpening its
environmental skills for the upcoming Clearfield County Envirothon to be held
May 2. The Envirothon provides students an opportunity to explore forestry,
soils, aquatics, wildlife and a new current topic chosen annually.
Before competing at the county level, teams from local schools comprised of
five students spend time researching with guidance to develop a greater
understanding of the interactions between humans and their environment. The
students will test their knowledge under the supervision of environmental
professionals including foresters, aquatic and wildlife biologists, and soil
scientists. Students are challenged to use teamwork to develop creative
solutions to environmental problems.
